my child goes to an ok comp which is lucky to have good (older & v experienced) science/maths teachers as well as excellent music. The school doesn't get wonderful OFSTEDs - however I imagine that this is catchment related. am I wrong to worry that the high-powered head wants to convert to academy status? i worry about the really good staff and the kids who might be marginalised. have been reading everything i can find about academy conversions... any advice would be gratefully received!
