The Selective Schools Expansion Fund (SSEF) funds academy schools and local-authority-maintained schools which select by ability to expand, subject to certain conditions.
There have been 2 bidding rounds in 2018 and 2019.
To be funded, schools must submit cost-effective expansion proposals which address a need for additional places in their areas. They are required to set out deliverable plans to increase applications from and admissions of children eligible for the pupil premium. Schools are also encouraged to include plans setting out how they intend to help raise standards more widely.
