What is an academy school?

An academy school is an independent, yet state funded school. Academies benefit from more freedom than those schools under local authority control. Every academy school is required to appoint a statutory auditor and it is advisable, when considering converting to academy status, to choose a professional adviser that specialises in the sector.
