The hunt to find a site for a new Birmingham's free school has been completed.

King Solomon International is due to commence teaching reception and year seven classes from next September at a site next to Aston University if it can secure backing from the Education Funding Agency.

King Solomon will be the city's first international business, Christian, international baccalaureate world free school teaching ages four to 19.

It is affiliated to the Woodard Foundation which has 48 schools in its group and over 150 years' experience of running successful schools.

Governor Dr Cheron Byfield said: "The trust has been working extremely hard towards opening King Solomon's reception and year seven groups in September 2015 and we are delighted to have found a centrally located site which is ideal for our school.

"This is a huge step forward and we hope to be able to share more details shortly."

The school will be split between 90 year seven places and 60 in reception and parents or carers with children due to start in September 2015 can apply now for a place.
