The evolutionary new school has alreadu kicked off in Doncaster – within the confines of stadium until the new premises are completed.

The XP School, the town’s first ‘free school’, which allows pupils and teachers to break away from conventional teaching methods, enrolled its first 50 youngsters last year and who are currently based in classrooms in the ground’s East Stand.

The school opened its doors to two classes of 25 year seven pupils last September – with hundreds more set to sign up over the coming years until the roster reaches 350.

The school, which is Government funded like the town’s other secondary schools, is open to 11 to 19-year-olds, with a new crop of youngsters coming in each September.
