Abstract

There has been an accelerating policy shift in England towards a system led improvement process for compulsory education, based on the principle of schools having greater autonomy. This government strategy has seen the rapid and further intended growth of academies, free schools, studio schools and university technical colleges (UCT) which are funded directly from central government, with a coterminous ending of the previous statutory relationship between state funded schools and local authorities. This radical policy has fundamentally changed the concepts of school governance and leadership within the country which, after a period of widespread academisation, has led to the preferred structure for supporting individual schools becoming the creation of Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs). In this model groups of academised schools are to be joined through the establishment of a trust which oversees the management of their prescribed educational provision through a corporate structure.
