Twenty areas will get new alternative provision free schools, the government has finally announced, but more than half of those that applied were rejected.

Delta Academies Trust has secured all four free schools it applied for, but others such as Unity Schools Partnership, in Suffolk, have been snubbed. All three bids in Nottinghamshire were rejected.

Just 20 schools out of 43 applications were approved (see full list below).

The announcement was made alongside the spring budget today, however it was due to be confirmed in autumn last year.
