Conservative government promises new free schools

In their election manifesto the Conservatives promised 500 new free schools over the life of the next parliament.

What are the necessary elements required to open a free school successfully? From the bidding process, to the successful development of the school, through to admitting pupils, all require a team with a mix of skills.

The New Schools Network provides support for the process but in addition starter groups need to evidence that they have a proven educational track record, and need to be supported by a team with strong financial, HR, project management, legal and consultation expertise and knowledge.
