Consultation description

We’re consulting on proposals to create more good school places. The proposals include:

  • expecting independent schools to support existing state schools, open new state schools or offer funded places to children whose families can’t afford to pay fees
  • asking universities to commit to sponsoring or setting up new schools in exchange for the ability to charge higher fees
  • allowing existing selective schools to expand and new selective schools to open, while making sure they support non-selective schools
  • allowing new faith free schools to select up to 100% of pupils based on their faith, while making sure they include pupils from different backgrounds
