Among the 93 free school opening this month is a specialist school for people with autism.
Thames Valley School, in Reading, Berkshire, has been launched by the National Autistic Society to offer opportunities to children with the condition.
It will cater for up to 50 pupils between the ages of four and 16, but will initially open with just 18 pupils building to full capacity over three years.
The charity, which already runs seven existing schools, plans to open two more free schools next year.
