Pre-open schools

Our Pre-opening Programme is designed to help free school founders deal with issues they face in getting their free school ready to open and provide advice on how to set it up for long-term success.

A short cut to the right advice

Developed in consultation with existing free school leaders, it is focused on the issues that we know are most typical. The programme gives you access to our team of experienced advisers, connects you with other free schools in the same situation and passes on the advice of those who have been through the same challenges before. 

Whether you are leading a multi academy trust or a small community-led group, and whether this is your first or tenth free school project, we can support you through the pre-opening process.
