A further 22 free schools have been will soon be open - creating 18,000 more school places across the country, Education Secretary Nicky Morgan has announced.
Free schools are newly established schools set up by groups such as teachers, parents, businesses and academy chains, with freedom over areas such as the curriculum.
Among those approved are two academies - one in Tower Hamlets, London and the other in Bournemouth - set up by Ian Livingstone, a founder of the Games Workshop who advised the Government on the computer curriculum.
The 'Livingstone Academies' will focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and maths, the Department for Education said.
There are also plans to set up a new body of property experts to help find more sites for free schools, the Education Secretary said.
