Is there nothing new?
Free Schools may be the modern invention of Education Secretary, Michael Gove, but their history goes back much further. The Perse School was built in 1618 as Cambridge’s first free school. Its beautiful hall with its hammer beam roof now houses the Whipple Museum of the History of Science. Find it in Free School Lane.
