Abstract

Academies are independent, non-selective, state-funded schools that fall outside the control of local authorities, and that are managed by teams of independent co-sponsors. The programme has been controversial, with supporters believing that academies’ freedom to pursue innovative school policies enables them to facilitate high standards of education, and opponents believing that it is a form of back-door privatisation that will lead to greater social segregation.
