New special free school for South Gloucestershire - Bidding process

Children with severe learning difficulties in South Gloucestershire will benefit from a new Special Free School to help meet their needs, following a government announcement that they will fund the construction of a new school.

Organisations interested in running the new school were invited to submit proposals to meet the criteria set out by the Department for Education.

The deadline for submitting proposals has now passed.

Submitted plans will be jointly assessed by the council and the Department for Education and the preferred option will be passed to the Secretary of State for Education for approval.
