Academy schools 'more likely to see Ofsted grades rise'

January 9, 2014 10:13 am

Schools in England which opted to become academies have improved more quickly than those staying as local authority schools, according to a Department for Education (DfE) analysis of Ofsted inspections.

Convertor academies account for more than two-thirds of the 3,613 academy schools and were more likely to improve from “good” to “outstanding” than local authority schools. The DfE report analyzed inspection results in 2012-13 in the wake of the rapid expansion of academies. Among England’s state sector secondary schools, 56% are now academies. Among primary schools, 11% have academy status.
