Traditional academies

Schools which become traditional academies are usually existing poorly performing state schools which are given to a new provider. The state (the Dept for Education) brokers between academy providers and the schools which are underperforming.

Academy providers are usually either Universities, FE colleges, education charities and businessmen. The provider must form a charity and cannot make a profit.

Free schools are held accountable to the government and are free from Local Authority Control.
