John Taylor MAT successful in free school bid

The Department for Education has announced this morning that John Taylor MAT has been successful in its application to run the new free school being constructed in Tatenhill. Opening in September 2018, the school will serve 11-18 year-olds in the locality, particularly the new housing developments in and around Branston Locks. The £30 million construction, the first secondary school to be built in Staffordshire for almost twenty years, was one of 131 new free schools announced in this latest wave of applications. It is amongst one of the largest approved and, once at full capacity, will have approximately 1600 students on its roll.
