New Free School For Peterborough

9 March 2015, 10:51

The Prime Minister's announced plans for 49 free schools in open in England - including one near Peterborough.

It will be in Hampton, called Hampton Gardens Free School.

David Cameron says it's in response to population growth and a need for more school places in Hampton, Yaxley and Farcet.

Hampton Gardens Free School will open its doors in September 2017. The new 1,500 place secondary school will be led by the Hampton Trust, the group behind the highly successful Hampton College. The two schools will work closely together sharing teachers and facilities and offering GCSEs and vocational courses across sites to widen the choice and opportunities available to pupils.

The Prime Minister has promised hundreds more of the Free Schools will open, if the Tories win May's general election.
