Welcome progress on a new secondary school for Middlesbrough

At Education Questions today I highlighted the totally unacceptable situation regarding the lack of secondary school places in Middlesbrough, and called for urgent action. A bid has been submitted for a new free school in Middlehaven. I was delighted the Education Secretary confirmed that there will be a decision imminently on this. Hopefully it will be a positive one and we can unlock the extra capacity we need.
