New Academies
The Academies Team

The Academies Team has been set up to provide information about the Academies programme in Oxfordshire. The team provides information to schools which are considering becoming an Academy and if they decide to do so, co-ordinates the timing of the preparation of transfer documentation from the relevant Council Directorates.
The team also provides information for groups of school which may wish to become a collaborative company and providers who wish to set up new Academies.

The academies team has an intranet page which contains more information and a current list of schools converting to become Academies.

The information includes:
• FAQ's
• Free schools, UTC's and studio schools
• Setting up a collaborative company
• Meetings and events
• Conversion guides
