Another school run by the Academies Enterprise Trust is in hot water and may be rebrokered to another sponsor because of falling standards.
Dominic Herrington, the national schools commissioner, has issued another “minded to terminate” notice to AET warning the trust over performance at the ‘inadequate’-rated Bexleyheath Academy in London.
The school was given the lowest possible Ofsted rating following a visit in November after inspectors found the school failed to deliver an “acceptable standard” of education and warned of falling standards over “several years”
It is the second warning notice issued to AET in recent weeks. The trust was warned last month that it could lose control of Offa’s Mead Academy in Sedbury, Gloucestershire, which was also recently rated ‘inadequate’.
