Becoming an Academy

Cyril Jackson Primary School is a highly successful school that serves its pupils, families and community exceptionally well.

Over the last couple of years the governors of CJPS have been exploring the benefits, advantages or disadvantages of converting to an academy.

They are not alone. This is an issue that schools up and down the country have been thinking about - over a third of Primary Schools and three quarters of Secondary Schools are now academies. Many of these academies are part of, or have formed, a Multi Academy Trust with other academies. This enables them to work in close partnership, learning from and supporting each other, and sharing resources to enable them to make the most from their budgets.
