The free schools left homeless for years

Almost half of the new free schools of the past three years opened in temporary accommodation, with most still not in a permanent home.

An investigation by Schools Week has also found Ofsted inspectors are flagging land issues in critical judgments, with one school now in limbo for seven years.

Another school, Katherine Warington School in Hertfordshire, this week had to send pupils on a bus ten miles down the road to a university campus because its building wasn’t ready.

School leaders are being left to improve sites themselves – with one school having to install new toilets, while another school has had three different sites in three years.
