Lifting the Faith Schools Cap

Since 2010 the 50 percent cap or 'rule' has prevented new Catholic free schools from opening, as the cap would have forced schools to turn away some Catholic pupils. The Catholic Church has welcomed the decision by the Education Secretary, Gillian Keegan, to lift the cap on new free schools in England. The decision is subject to a consultation on removing the cap, that closes on 20 June.
