Open academies and academy projects in development

Information on all academies open in England, and those in the process of becoming academies.


This spreadsheet sets out:

  • details of the total number of open academies
  • details of schools that are in the process of getting academy status
  • the progress schools are making towards converting to academy status
  • sponsored academy projects in development and the agreed sponsor

We update this spreadsheet monthly as more academies open. We aim to publish these updates in the first week of the month.

Find the location of open academies on the academies map, where you can click into areas and view details for each academy.

You can also read details of open free schools and free schools in the pre-opening stage.
