AET logoMore than a dozen academy chains have been barred from running more schools amid serious concerns over education standards and financial mismanagement, it has emerged.

The Department for Education revealed that 14 organisations – currently sponsoring 170 academies – are unable to expand until urgent improvements are made.

Ministers said the chains would be prevented from “taking on new projects” to put a renewed focus on driving up standards in their existing schools, although the Government insisted the number of groups hit by restrictions had actually fallen in the last six months.
