Answer for Academies

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response from the Mayor received 19 September 2013

The Academies programme is well established in London and I no longer need to be involved in the governance of any single school. Following the Education Inquiry my focus will be on supporting London schools on a more strategic level. I will continue to provide grant funding to the four Academies for delivery of the Three-Part Offer, to provide their students with the skills and knowledge required for a successful transition from secondary school into further and higher education and then employment.
