Invitation to Submit Proposals to Sponsor a new Primary Free School Provision in Colchester

Essex County Council is inviting applications to sponsor a new primary free school in new buildings on the Lakelands Development, Stanway, Colchester.
The new primary school will open in September 2020.  Once operating at full capacity it will deliver 420 primary school places.

Fuller details may be found in the invitation to submit a proposal.


Potential sponsors should first register their interest with the County Council by emailing at the earliest opportunity, and then complete the application form and submit it, together with their full proposal, to that same email address by close on 11 April 2019. 
The full proposal should provide additional materials and information, to demonstrate comprehensively how the proposal meets the application criteria and DfE requirements.

Potential sponsors may also be interested in the New Schools Network.
