Following the West Midlands Head Teacher Board towards the end of April, the application for Brailes C of E Primary School was approved to become an Academy and join The Stour Federation, formally linking up with Acorns Primary School in Long Compton and Shipston Primary. The Regional Schools Commissioner has signed the order, with a hopeful 1st August conversion date.

As the three schools have been working in close partnership for nearly six years, there will be no real noticeable difference for our families.
