A proposed new primary free school in Northallerton

Would your Academy Trust be interested in operating a new primary school for North Yorkshire?

North Yorkshire County Council has identified the need to establish a new mixed mainstream primary school with nursery for children aged 4 to 11 in Northallerton to open in September 2022. We are therefore seeking proposals to establish an academy under section 6A of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 (the ‘free school presumption’).
