The Academy Alliance

With over 8,500 qualifying members, this relatively recent and highly popular cooperative group runs two contextualised  support and information networks: The Primary Academy Network and the Secondary Academy Newtork. Both support all those seeking advice and guidance on the benefits and disadvantages of converting to Academy Status given the specific context of an individual school. Four main areas are focused upon:

  • Obtaining balanced and accurate information
  • Using an evaluative framework to undertake an initial contextualised review of likely issues, benefits and problems
  • Taking a considered argument to a wider audience
  • Undertaking the formal conversion process

If you would like to know how either network can provide practical and highly valued support in a complex area, then please visit the websites at:

Further contact details for these phase specific networks are contained within the sites.
