The NAO previously reported on the Academies Programme in February 2007 focussing on the academic performance, programme and project management of the first 27 academies.  As at September 2009 there were around 200 academies.  The new government intends to significantly increase this number.  This follow-up study will track progress by academies in improving educational outcomes and identify any lessons for the future expansion of the Progamme.
