    Based on my knowledge of some of the other proposals doing the rounds, you are onto a surefire winner.

    You are going to need a ridiculous location such as a heliport or an abandoned coalmine plus the unconditional support of two UKIP councillors and the local knitting circle. You should pick the most expensive and archaic uniform supplier (parents find this reassuring) and say you are planning a radical new curriculum that meets the needs of employers in the 21st Century (then confound your detractors by making the study of four ancient languages compulsory). I wish you every success.

    I wish my maths teachers were this sarcastic.

    Why waste millions of pounds improving schools, when you can build on and it will do a better job because it is free from local authority. Disclipline is a major issue in state schools and i believe parents can do a better job

    That's one of my life's ambitions too, it's something that's close to my heart, but I would love to open new schools in Africa, but you need lots of money :/. I'm really glad someone else wants to do something like this too.

    Are you a teacher, student, pupil, parent or a celebrity? For how long have you been planning?

    (I'd also be interested in what curriculum you are planning to offer; see here)

    I am a graduate, but I went to a school where I was bullied and where there was major disclipine problems.

    I'll be opening my own free school. Fire2burn's grand academy of arson and pyromania.

    I think it'll be a success.

    OP, this link should give you some information, as a starting point for setting up a free school.

    I was lucky that I had good parents to support me and thats why I went university and got my degree but there were others who were unfortunate to have good parents, lack of help from teachers. This is the reason why i want to open my own school.

    This makes me so glad I'm escaping education now.
    I feel for those young kids.
