NSN welcomes over 50 new free schools opening in September
If you're interested in opening a free school, we can help. Applications to join the Development Programme are now open.
Free schools are new state schools, independent of local authorities. Charities, groups of teachers, existing schools and parents can set up new schools if they have the necessary knowledge and experience.
The NSN Delivery Programme fills gaps in capacity and capability, providing a range of support options to prepare schools for a successful opening.
