New issue of Academy Magazine set for launch – read it online now May 2, 2012

Posted by Jonathan Barnes, editor in Magazines, New releases.

The third issue of our hugely popular Academy Magazine, produced in partnership with FASNA, is now available to read online.

Printed copies will find their way to schools and subscribers very shortly.

Since its launch last year, Academy has proved a runaway success, reflecting the high numbers of schools converting to academies and the growth of free schools. As the Editor points out in the summer issue, more than 50% of secondary school pupils are now educated at academies.

The new, 68-page issue offers practical advice for Headteachers, governors and staff and provides important insights into what ‘becoming an academy’ actually means and entails, which will interest anyone involved in the school community.

Wellington Academy, a school rebranded by the independent Wellington College, features on the cover, and offers a shining example of how independent and state schools can work in partnership.

Other contributors include FASNA chairman Tom Clark, who looks at changes in school governance; Steve Munby, chief executive of the National College for School Leadership; educational consultant Barry Featherstone, who argues the case for vocational subjects; and Chris Healy, Head of Balcarras School in Cheltenham, who outlines its bid to becoming a teaching school.

The Department for Education also provides financial advice for academies; while the Education Funding Agency explains the opportunities it can provide. Plus much more, including a focus on the achievements on a number of newly-converted academies.

You can read Academy Magazine online now – as well as previous issues – at www.academymag.co.uk.

The magazine is published three times a year. To contribute to upcoming issues, contact the Editor at editor@academymag.co.uk. Potential advertisers can contact Madeleine Anderson at manderson@johncatt.com.
