Education secretary Michael Gove welcomes East Lancashire's new free schools
9:00pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
EDUCATION Secretary Michael Gove has welcomed the opening of East Lancashire’s new free schools.
Among the new schools opening this month are The Heights Free School, an ‘alternative provision’ free school, The Olive School, a co-educational Muslim primary school for 630 pupils, both of which are in Blackburn.
The Visions Learning Trust University Technical College in Burnley and Darwen Aldridge Enterprise Studio in Darwen, have both opened in the last week.
Mr Gove said: “Free schools are now an integral part of the growing success story of state education in England.
“They are hugely popular, giving parents greater choice in communities poorly served for generations.
“Their success reflects incredibly well on the teachers who work in them and the parents who support them.”
