A joint analysis by TES and data firm SchoolDash reveals which areas are most vulnerable to forced academisation which include local authorities such as northeast Lincolnshire, Hull and Bromley.

The analysis looked at the revised criteria which are being proposed by the Department for Education.

The proposals are for conversion all schools run by local authorities that fall into one of two categories by 2022. The first is authorities in which a “critical mass” of academies has already been reached and the second is authorities in which schools are deemed to be “underperforming”

In contrast with those identified as likely to convert schools in Kensington and Chelsea, North Tyneside and Trafford are most likely to remain under local authority-control according to the analysis.
