The Governors, Head teacher, staff, parents and children of Discovery New School are deeply disappointed that Lord Nash has refused to give us the opportunity to continue as a free school.
Everyone connected with the school has worked tirelessly over the past few months to deliver the plan presented to the Department for Education on Friday 6th December. Our management team and new partners, including a National Leader of Governance and the Montessori St NicholasTrust, believe the school submitted a plan that was both credible and strong and would continue to deliver change quickly.
