Revised Consultation for New Secondary School on Hanwood Park

In February 2021, the Orbis Education Trust were sucessful in a free school bid to open a new secondary school for boys on the Hanwood Park Development.

Following feedback the Orbis Education Trust and North Northamptonshire Council have decided to reconsult to ensure the new free school is best placed to meet the needs of secondary-aged students residing in our new development and in the wider Kettering area.

The consultation is running from Monday 23rd January until midnight on Sunday 5th March 2023.
