This document lists approved academy sponsors, including the lead regional school commissioner (RSC) region.

It is useful for:

  • schools looking for a sponsor
  • new sponsors looking for another sponsor to work with
  • local authorities looking for a sponsor solution for some of their schools

Note that:

  • we regularly update the list as we approve new sponsors
  • sponsors provide the majority of names and details
  • in some cases, sponsors listed will be unable to take on additional academies
  • this information is sourced from the internal academies management information held centrally by DfE
