A happy new year and new decade to you all. We hope that you have had a great festive season.
The team at XP Gateshead are incredibly excited that this could be the year when we are approved to bring XP to Gateshead.
Our application was submitted to the Department for Education at the end of last year, but due to government departments closing down over the election period, we expect that this will lead to a delay in us receiving notification if our application has gone forward to the interview stage.
The next big step in our application is next week, when we will have a mock interview with the New Schools Network, the charity which advises on the creation of new academies. We are looking forward to getting further valuable feedback from them on the strength of our application.
Following this we will update you with announcements about further events to share information about the school.
Thanks once again for your support, and spread the word!
