Free School Presumption Competition

Announcement to Multi Academy Trusts of a free school presumption competition

Milton Keynes Council has launched a competition over the next six weeks (from w/c 12 September 2016) for Multi Academy Trusts to apply to become the provider of one or two new schools being built in Kents Hill Park. This is in accordance with Dept for Education guidance “The free school presumption- February 2016”.

A new primary school is being built for September 2017 and a secondary school for September 2018. We are seeking proposals from Multi Academy Trusts to run one school, both schools individually or both schools as one all-through school on two campuses.

The application form and specification documents about each new school are available on the left of this page. This competition is open nationally so is also advertised on the Dept for Education website here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/new-school-proposals

The closing date for applications is noon on 21 October 2016.

The contact for this competition is the Education Sufficiency team - sufficiencyandaccess@milton-keynes.gov.uk  

We look forward to receiving your applications.
