Administration and finance


The Academies Act 2010 allows the Secretary of State to approve applications from schools that wish to become Academies. This is being achieved through a simplified, streamlined process. There is a wealth of information and support available to help your school become an Academy. This page outlines the process and points to further sources of information and advice.

Timetable and checklist

The following timetable/checklist is to be used as a guide by Devon County Council and the School to ensure key tasks are actioned once DCC have received confirmation the School has actually converted (not prior).
