The government recently announced that it their drive to help ‘Free’ schools open they make empty government buildings available.
Of course many people were worried that government buildings may not be suitable for schools – how many of them have playgrounds and science labs we wonder?
The government have now released an initial list of available buildings, with more to follow. There are 6 buildings on the list, which is slightly short of the 100 new ‘free’ schools they propose to open.
The list includes Balham Youth Court, 3 Magistrates Courts and 2 Department for Education offices (presumably no longer needed).
So if any of you are preparing a ‘free’ school bid, and you want to set a nice disciplined tone, put in a bid for your local court!
