The School organisation site contains guidance on a range of subjects, including

  • opening a new school (by competition, exemption [section 10s] or otherwise)
  • closing a school
  • expanding a school
  • changing school category
  • proposals for Trust schools
  • implementing other significant changes to a school.

If you are eligible to use the members' area of the site, you can also access a tool to build draft statutory notices to make changes to schools, and another to check the status of Trust school proposals.
