Academy schools are state funded schools in England which are directly funded by central government (specifically, the Department for Education) and independent of direct control by the local authority. The governing body of an Academy is accountable to the Secretary of State through the requirements of a Funding Agreement. Each Academy is under the control of its governing body, which has a clearly defined strategic role in shaping success.
