No. We place great importance on working with experts, carrying out purposeful fieldwork and development of character through adventurous activities such as Outward Bound and the Duke of Edinburgh Award. These are all integral parts of our curriculum and are free of charge to all parents.

Of course, if parents are able and willing to contribute financially or with their time/expertise we would welcome that, but it is by no means expected.

Can I apply to work at XP Gateshead?

At the moment, we are in the application phase of the process to open a new school. If in Summer 2020 we are approved to open, then we will begin recruitment for leadership including a Principal, Teaching Staff, Learning Coaches to support in the classroom and Administration

Our advice at the moment would be to subscribe to our website or follow us on Twitter / Facebook to keep updated on our progress.

During 2020 we will be holding further consultation events, so come along and talk to us in person.
