Latest Update 6th July

We are still awaiting a decision from the Department for Education following their receipt of Ofsted’s inspection report.  The delay is in fact on our side rather than theirs: our fire risk assessment report was slightly later in arriving than we had hoped and that has delayed the process somewhat.  We are still doing all within our power to be ready to open in September, but must once again remind parents that they should not rely on a place being available at IGS: Durham and should make alternative arrangements in case we are not able to open on time.  There remains the possibility (assuming that we are approved) that we will have to delay our opening but it is worth noting that schools can open at any time and there are no restrictions on when a child may join a school.   Thank you for your interest in IGS: Durham and do keep an eye on the website for updates.
