Horninglow Primary, Lansdowne Infant and Eton Park Junior, all in Burton, have been approved as academies and are the very first schools to be adopted by the de Ferrers Trust to help create an ‘all through’ school system. 

On the de Ferrers Trust website, a statement read: “We are thrilled to welcome Lansdowne, Eton Park Junior and Horninglow Primary to The de Ferrers Trust. All three schools have now converted to academy status as of 1 May 2016.  We are looking forward to working with and supporting our new partners to fulfil the Trust's vision to provide a 'World Class' education to all of our students.”

Becci Breedon, joint principal of Lansdowne alongside Jackie Holmes, told the Burton Mail: 'We are excited to begin our journey as an academy working alongside other colleagues in order to provide the education for our students now, and when they progress to secondary school. 

'This will provide a seamless education for children aged three to 18, as well as opportunities to share expertise across all academies within the multi-academy trust.'
