What we do

What our clients say

Create: Schools

Create: Schools was established by PAG in 2022 to act as the Department for Education’s (DfE) sole delivery partner for the free school applicant support service. By providing expert independent advice and guidance to proposer groups, Create: Schools will support the creation of new mainstream, special, and alternative provision (AP) free schools in areas where they are most needed across the country.

The free services provided by Create: Schools are delivered by a team of expert advisors, who work intensively with proposers during live free school waves to develop competitive, high-quality applications in line with the DfE’s criteria and application guidance.
