academies online resource

4 March 2013

This resource is designed to give school leaders key information on achieving academy status and working in academy groups.

Last year we commissioned Ipsos MORI to carry out a survey and this survey revealed that many schools were interested in supporting or working with other schools under the academy programme - but they felt they lacked sufficient information.
