This guide has been produced with the close assistance of the Chair of Governors and Head Master of one of the schools that opened as an Academy on 1st September 2010. Having gone through the process ourselves, we've found the obstacles and navigated around them. By sharing our experiences and acting as a focal point for other schools, we hope to help you make your transition run smoothly.
