Answer for Free School sites

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Sites have now been made available for 17 free schools and 2 other schools.

Five of these free schools opened in temporary premises in 2013, six in 2014 and two in 2015. Two will not be opening until their permanent sites are ready and two sites have not yet been allocated to schools. Five have been inspected by OFSTED, two have been graded Outstanding and three graded Good.

None of the schools involved have yet moved into their permanent premises. Four are due to occupy their permanent premises in 2016/17, seven in 2017/18, three in 2018/19 and one in 2019/20.

Of the other two schools, an academy and an UTC, the first is scheduled to occupy its permanent home in September 2016 and the other in September 2017.
