Prominent academy chains form ‘Northern Alliance’

  1. It is interesting that this group has met in secret for a year and then presented their power base to the DfE and the Regional Schools Commissioner Network. It is not difficult to work out their motive.

    David Carter on behalf of the DfE RSC is giving them carte blanche to walk all over them and can’t do a thing about it.

    A Ponzi scheme if ever there was one.


  2. A bigger stitch up than in any operating theatre in the world ! Carte Blanche doesn’t even begin to describe this travesty !! God help the schools involved.


  3. Three of the five MATs in the executive group calling themselves ‘The Northern Alliance’ are all from Outwood Grange………stitch up? A Ponzi scheme too..
