The attached table provides the number and average salary details of executive headteachers in academy schools in London, all other regions and England for the years 2016 to 2018. Figures for local authority maintained schools are included for context.

The department would expect executive headteacher roles in academies to be more highly paid as they generally have a wider range of responsibilities compared to headteachers in local authority schools.
