I have made 20 sites available for all schools on GLA Group Land which will provide well over 10,000 school places. My New Schools for London unit was established to specifically encourage the delivery of new schools across London.


I also launched the London Schools Atlas which sets out an overview of schools in the capital, including demand for places.
