Join us on Facebook for an Academies Show panel discussion

Everything you wanted to know about how - and why - to convert to academy status.

Welcome to our live stream event - coming to you from the Academies Show in Birmingham. We’ll be enjoying the knowledge and experience of four experts in academies and we’d like to invite you to put your questions to them. Is your school leadership team considering converting? What are the benefits? What do you need to consider?

We’ll ask your questions at the event (along with some from the audience) so please add them in the comments box below - and you can watch it live from 1.15 on Wednesday 28 November.

The video will be edited and available to watch on this page the day after the event. Thanks for watching!
