Dear Department for Education,

I believe my request needed no clarification.

I would like to see links to all the research that the Secretary of State has used in deciding that the forced Academisation of schools is necessary.

No research has been made available and his decision must be based on research surely?

Yours faithfully,

Alan Mills

Department for Education

Dear Mr Mills,
Thank you for your email dated 14 November 2012 about the Academies programme.
The Department for Education does not currently act under a policy by which all schools are turned into Academies
on a compulsory basis. However, the Secretary of State has the power to intervene to raise standards and improve
performance. These powers are set out in legislation under the Academies Act 2010.

 Underperforming schools are replaced by sponsored Academies. There is a wide body of research on the topic of
sponsored Academies. Research conducted by the Department is published on our website:

In addition, the following publications contain information on the Academies programme:

·         The Academies Annual Report 2010/11 can be found via the following link:
