all through academies on the rise?

24 February 2014

Figures show that the number of “all through academies”, which cater for children from the age of 4 to 18 are on the rise, with the number of combined primary and schools due to increase by 25% over the next two years.

All through provision is seen by supporters as an antedote to the traditional dip in performance when children switch from a primary to a secondary school.

Whilst the main driver of growth is seen to driven by the free schools programme, (with new schools having more options available to it than existing provision) one suspects that all through provision will also begin to appear in local multi academy trusts which contain secondary and primary schools. With budgets projected to be squeezed, local chains will be under pressure to consolidate spending and a one site solution for two or more schools may become a developing theme over the next few years.
