Millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money is being squandered building up pupil numbers at controversial ‘Free Schools’ because they over-estimated how many children would enrol.

But despite the waste, Education Secretary Michael Gove is now making it easier for sponsors of Free Schools – a flagship idea of the Tory-led Coalition – to set them up.

Founders of Free Schools will be allowed three attempts to open schools – instead of the present one – and that means even more taxpayers’ money down the drain.

But we will never know how much because the Government refuses to divulge how much it costs to work on setting up the pet project of top Tory Gove.
