Schools Wave 13 Free School Proposal

The Department for Education (DfE) is looking to open new mainstream free schools in areas that currently have the lowest standards and need additional school places.

South Gloucestershire Council is seeking to establish the provision of two new schools through the central government Mainstream Free Schools Programme (Wave 13). Under this route, government invites applications from groups to establish high quality new schools and provides the capital for land and construction. To secure best value for money, where possible, the DfE will look to supplement funding with other contributions. This includes the provision of a site from local authorities or contributions from developers.

Details of the new schools planned are set out in the downloads section along with details of the process and timeline.
