New Free School For Consett

We are a small group of parents, teachers and a head teacher passionate about improving the quality of primary school education on offer in Consett.New Free School For Consett

There are too few schools in the area judged by Ofsted as good or better.

Those that are good are increasingly over-subscribed and under pressure from new housing developments.

We are aiming to open a free school near the centre of town to cater for the needs of local families in an innovative way.

We will provide a high quality education and affordable childcare from 8am to 5.30pm everyday with holiday times to support working parents and enable them to take advantage of out of season holiday prices without jeopardising children’s education.
