Section 10 Consultation

We would like to know your views about our proposal to open a new mainstream academy in Gateshead.

As part of the Section 10 consultation of the Academies Act for the opening of XP Gateshead, XP Trust is undertaking statutory consultation.

The consultation will be run from Friday 26th March 2021 to 12pm on Thursday 6th May 2021.

All ideas and comments gathered during this consultation process will form part of a report which will be passed onto the XP Trust and Government Ministers in the Department for Education. They will take your views into account when making decisions about the proposed Free School for Gateshead and whether to enter into a funding agreement which will enable the school to open.

The consultation will take place from Friday 26th March 2021 until 12pm on Thursday 6th May 2021.

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to offer any public, in-person events. Instead over the coming weeks we will publish details of online events which will be provided for specific stakeholders. You can view our Virtual Open Evening from October 2020 here.
