academy success

20 October 2010

Definitive research has been published indicating that Academies have achieved significantly better results than their predecessor schools due to speedy decision making and innovative teaching methods. The findings mirror the National Audit Office’s findings in its recent Report on Academies’ academic attainment for their pupils.

This research lends support to the government’s Academies programme and no doubt the government will wish to press forward with allowing non-outstanding schools to covert to Academy status as soon as possible. We are acting for many ‘converting’ schools and this research suggests the rate of conversions will not die down anytime soon.
