Comparing Academies and LA Maintained Schools

Using Watchsted data, a new report has been compiled to look at national performance across Academies and LA maintained schools.

This report considers an alternative way of presenting performance data, using the latest Ofsted framework but excluding converter academy predecessor grades.

Sponsored Academies

In addition, we were able to examine a sample of 420 sponsored academies that opened in the last three years, comparing their latest Ofsted inspection grade to their predecessor’s last Ofsted grade.

The chart below shows the proportion of schools that have improved, declined or stayed the same since becoming a sponsored academy.

56% of sponsored academies in the sample improved their grade.
