Academies - this is who applied
The official lists of who registered an interest are here: DfE Academies - Registering Interest
Alternatively you can see my handy reworking of their lists - sorted by LA
The two lists are "Outstanding schools eligible to convert"
and "not outstanding schools which will have to wait"
Please remember that a school that has expressed an interest has done so to find out more. Application to convert will require a separate FoI request to find out who has actually bitten the bullet!

We're on the latter list. Fun fun!

Interesting we're not listed but in the outstanding list but I was told that we'd registered our interested. I suspect our school sent a letter and didn't bother to check the website

Interesting, a few school on the "outstanding list" are actually pretty bad and did quite badly in latest OFSTED, but a school on the "not outstanding" list got an outstanding in recent OFSTED.
thats just for my area anyway.

The school which I used to attend and which is planning to form a trust with other local schhools is on the not outstanding.

The DfE got a freedom of information request to which they have responded - so i suppose it could be out of date. The original lists on their website look like they're in order of application.
Remember, just because your school is on the list, it does not mean they have applied to convert. This is just the "expression of interest" list which is the only way to get detailed info from the DfE

The primary school that's about 300 metres from my main site is on there, cool. A few in this town and a few in my home town, too, but not as many as other places. Thank you for posting this

Very interesting lists, very few in my county to say were huge! I see my old school I used to work at is on the second list which I think is a good move I would have hoped to have seen mine on the second list as well but hey ho A couple of local primary's in our cluster are on it though which is a bit concerning with some local issues at present.

We're not on it.. but the school we are supposed to merge with is on the 2nd list....
25th June 2010, 09:39 PM #12
We have 10 on the first and 18 on the second ... so about 8.5% of our schools applied.

How's it gonna affect the funding for LEA provided services do you reckon? With the 25% drop in Harnessing Technology grant too, the finances have gotta be looking a bit bleak at the moment for some LEAs?

Our school is on the list, although we did know it had "registered an interest"

My rough and ready calculations says about 47% of the outstanding schools expressing an interest are primary/infant/junior - more than I expected.
I'm posting the excel that I extracted from the originals in case someone's bored and wants to do some stats!
