Trust Expansion Consultation January 2024

24th January 2024

Trust Expansion Consultation
Consultation on the transfer of The Duchy Trust schools into An Daras Trust.
The Trustees of the Duchy Trust, Callington and An Daras Trust, Launceston are consulting with stakeholders, the wider community and partner organisation’s on a proposal for the three schools currently within the Duchy Trust to transfer into the larger eight school An Daras Trust based in Launceston but operating schools in both Cornwall and Devon.
Duchy Trust has been in existence since 2014 and consists of Callington Primary, Boyton Primary and Lewannick Primary. An Daras Trust, has been in existence since 2014 and operates eight primary schools.
The Trustees of both Trusts are consulting at this formative stage and the five-week consultation window will conclude prior to any final decision being taken.
Trustees at both organisations agree that the proposal - after a recent successful 12-month period of close collaboration - being considered is very much in the best long-term interests of both Trusts, their respective communities and the pupils and parents who attend Trust schools currently and well into the future. Trustees believe the existing vision and values promoted by both Trusts are closely aligned and demonstrate a shared aspiration for current and future educational achievement within the wider Launceston and Callington areas.
The consultation will run from 9:00am on Wednesday 24th January until midnight on Wednesday 28th February 2024.
