Camden Conversation session - Andy Sprakes, Executive Principal of XP School in Doncaster - Wednesday 10 February 2021, 4pm-5pm

Andy Sprakes, Executive Principal of XP School in Doncaster, will be leading our second Camden Conversation session on Wednesday 10 February 2021 between 4pm - 5pm. These sessions are designed to support the development of our new education strategy, Coming Back Stronger, by opening our thinking to fresh ideas.

This session is relevant to all schools, not just secondaries. XP is part of a broader campus with a primary school and another secondary school. The leadership of all 3 schools work closely together. XP’s website is and a short video explaining the school's ethos can be viewed below.

Rather than being taught separate subjects in different classes, XP students complete term-long learning expeditions. Within these, students create products, services or presentations that are exhibited at the end of the expedition to their parents and the audience the project relates to. Expeditions are created by teachers to address a real issue that students can relate to and invest in personally. They all have academic rigour and are designed to cover many standards of the National Curriculum in depth. Expeditions are designed around real-world issues and problems, and their students work to effect positive change in their communities. Students are engaged and motivated by understanding that their learning has relevance, meaning and purpose.
