Twenty-five academy trusts have been selected to run 30 new special free schools – but a process to find trusts for three schools will have to be re-run.

Wellspring Academy Trust will run three of the schools in Birmingham, North East Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire. 

Ethos Academy Trust, Ascendency Partnership Trust and MacIntyre Academies Trust will run two each (see full list below).

However two areas are not on the Department for Education’s successful applicants list – including two schools in Cheshire East and one on the Isle of Wight.
