The capital scheme for voluntary-aided schools is designed to be small, and registering interest in the scheme prior to submitting a bid for funding was not compulsory.

As well as exploratory discussions with stakeholders, we received expressions of interest for 22 new voluntary-aided schools.

The expressions of interest led to 14 bids for funding submitted to the department. A list of the bids that the department received will be published in due course.
