Supporting Great Schools In Tamworth

My colleagues in the Department for Education are committed to ensuring that everyone can have the best start in life, and go as far as their talents and hard work can take them. That is why I am pleased that in May the Government announced £50 million funding to expand the number of places at good or outstanding selective schools, which will provide greater opportunities for disadvantaged pupils. In all, 1.9 million more children are now being taught in good or outstanding schools since 2010, while the percentage of schools rated as good or outstanding has risen by 18 per cent.
