What is an Academy?

Academies are publicly-funded independent schools that provide a first-class education.

What’s different about academies?


Academies benefit from greater freedoms to innovate and raise standards. These include:

  • freedom from local authority control;
  • the ability to set their own pay and conditions for staff;
  • freedoms around the delivery of the curriculum; and
  • the ability to change the lengths of terms and school days.

Some academies, generally those set up to replace underperforming schools, will have a sponsor. Sponsors come from a wide range of backgrounds including successful schools, businesses, universities, charities and faith bodies. Sponsors are held accountable for the improving the performance of their schools. They do this by challenging traditional thinking on how schools are run and what they should be like for students. They seek to make a complete break with cultures of low aspiration and achievement. The sponsor’s vision and leadership are vital to each project.

Three Peaks Primary Academy is a sponsored academy.  Three Peaks is sponsored by the Creative Education Trust (“CET”).
