Schools Bill – All Schools to Become Academies by 2030?

High School Students Wearing Uniform Raising Hands To Answer Question Set By Teacher In Classroom

To achieve their ambition for education, the government wants a fully trust led system by 2030, where all schools should be, or working towards being, in a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). This means that there will be no maintained local authority schools, and all schools will be part of a MAT, or in the process of joining one.
