Academy conversion and predecessor schools

Under the Academies Act 2010, schools may apply to the Secretary of State to
convert to academy status. Such schools are known as academy converters.

Upon conversion to academy status the existing school closes and a new school
opens in its place. Although little may have changed, the academy converter is a
new legal entity.

Most academy converters have yet to have a section 5 inspection. However, to assist
parents and other interested parties, information about, and the inspection history of
the school which preceded the new academy are available here.

It is important to note that, as the academy converter is a new school, which may
not yet have been inspected, the inspection judgements of the predecessor school
are not those of the new academy. However, the most recent inspection judgements
of the predecessor school are taken into account by Ofsted for th e purpose of
scheduling the first inspection of the new academy converter.

Some academy converters have replaced schools which were judged to be
outstanding at their most recent Ofsted inspection. Under the Education Act 2011,
most schools previously judged to be outstanding will be exempt from routine
inspection. This means they will not be subject to inspection at regular intervals.
However, three years after the predecessor school was last inspected it will be
subject to Ofsted's formal risk-assessment process, which may lead to an inspection.

Finally, under section 8 of the Education Act 2005 the Chief Inspector may decide to
inspect any school in England if requested to do so by the Secretary of State, or if,
based on information received by Ofsted, he judges that a school would benefit from
inspection.
