The expansion of the academies programme has been one of the biggest changes to the English education system in a generation. 3.4 million children are now taught in either a sponsored or a converter academy. Those children will have been educated in schools with different governance arrangements, potentially a different curriculum and different approaches to teaching practices, structures and qualifications.

The Education Policy Institute (EPI) has published a paper examining the impact of academies on educational outcomes. The comprehensive report brings together EPI’s own analysis, along with research undertaken by the London School of Economics.
