Wynyard Church of England Primary School opened in September 2015 as part of a new development at Wynyard. As a school serving a brand-new housing estate, the Trust was presented with significant challenges. Place Group was appointed to provide project management support for the pre-opening phase including advice on governance, education, finance and stakeholder consultation.

“Place Group was very good at building and maintaining a relationship with the DfE which was crucial to the success of the project. We would definitely use Place Group again.”  Paul Rickeard, Diocesan Director of Education, Durham and Newcastle
