Local authority schools outperform academies, research suggests

86% of council-run schools in England rated good or outstanding by Ofsted, compared with 82% for academies.

The government’s plan to force all schools to become academies has come under further attack with research which suggests that council-maintained schools outperform academies at inspection.

Analysis by the Local Government Association (LGA) has found that 86% of local authority schools are rated good or outstanding by the schools watchdog, Ofsted, compared with 82% of academies and 79% of free schools.
