  • I'd vote for that (though I work in an academy that I think works well so I wouldn't trumpet it too loudly).

  • Your school was probably working well before becoming an academy though right? I think the facts are that most schools that have transitioned are either the same or worse.

    The idea that the good schools would be spreading their success around the less good schools turned out to be a good idea on paper only.

  • Actually ours was set up especially by one of the most predatory academy chains.

    The thing is - the chain has questionable methods around forced takeovers and expectations of staff (though the latter is improving) - but the outcomes for the schools are really impressive. I think there are one or two large MATs that have had similar success - and then quite a few very mediocre ones.
