Blow for schools as academy firm pulls out of deals

PLANS to turn two Portsmouth secondary schools into academies have hit a brick wall after sponsorship was withdrawn.

Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) has confirmed it is withdrawing its academy sponsorship of Miltoncross and Priory schools.

Both schools were expected to become AET academies later this year.

But it’s believed the trust has been asked by the Department for Education (DfE) to focus on raising results in its existing academies, rather than taking on more schools.
