Initial Consultation Report

The Trust Board has now published its report on the Initial Consultation carried out last Summer. Please see below.

We would like to thank everyone who took part in the consultation, either by attending meetings or submitting written responses.

Having carefully considered all responses, the Trust Board has decided that it remains of the view that a primary/secondary arrangement would be in the best interests of the children who progress through the school system to be educated at Queen Elizabeth High School.

As such, we believe it will be appropriate in due course to proceed to a formal consultation.

Northumberland County Council has recently embarked on its own consultation about Education in the West. This will cover provision in both the Hexham and Haydon Bridge Partnerships, educational and financial sustainability, capital investment and the potential consequences of our own age range proposal, among other issues.

We warmly welcome this wider debate and Hadrian Learning Trust intends to play a full part. We will discuss with the Regional Schools Commissioner and the Council how that might best work in conjunction with the Education in the West process.

We believe this is a once-in-a-generation chance to build a school system that delivers the very best education for our children. We are committed to working in partnership with others to help achieve this.
