  • Over 50% of the sponsored academies that responded (two thirds of secondary sponsored) stated that there had been a rise in the number of first choice applications since conversion.
  • 72% supported schools that they had not worked with under local authority control.
  • 75% reported that had changed or planned to change their curriculum.
  • 1 in 10 stated that they had changed term dates or planned to do so.
