Making fast progress

Since the announcement on the 30th September 2014 that The One Degree Academy will open in September 2016, there has been a mammoth amount of work going on behind the scenes.

We have recruited a programme manager, Joe Howlett to oversee our journey to opening in 12 months time.

We have been working over the last 3 months to recruit an outstanding Founding Principal to lead our school. This has involved an advertising campaign in the national press and an extensive search using our personal networks in order that we get the best range of candidates. We are in the final stages of shortlisting and hope to move to interviews shortly. Watch this space for an announcement soon!

We have been meeting with the Department for Education and Education Funding agency to ensure we get the best design, equipment and latest technology possible for our school.

All in all, the last few months have been relentless and exhilarating – we should expect nothing less as we get closer to opening in September 2016!
