NSN has supported open free schools since they first opened in 2011 by providing advice, training and networking opportunities. 

NSN’s deep institutional knowledge is supplemented by its team of Specialists – experienced specialists with strong track records supporting complex free school projects and growing MATs. Collectively, NSN’s Advisers and Specialists have worked on over 500 free school projects – ranging from supporting groups in the preopening phase, to setting up and working in free schools.
