EDUCATIONGATESHEAD

Since becoming Head Teacher at High Spen Primary, I have found the services offered by educationGateshead little short of invaluable.

At all levels within school they offer guidance, support and challenge.

NQTs, middle and senior leaders have all benefitted from robust training to develop practice.
