Oldham free school staffed by ex-military personnel approved

A proposal for a free school staffed by former armed forces personnel has been approved.

The Department for Education (DfE) turned down plans for the Phoenix Free School in Oldham, which aimed to “keep kids out of gang culture”, last year.

But school director Tom Burkard said that decision was overturned after the proposal was resubmitted.
