UK200Group Academies Conference 2019

Even though the number of Academies in existence throughout the UK has increased, the UK200Group member firms’ market share in the academies sector holds strong for another year. The total figures were released to the member firms at the UK200Group Annual Academies Conference on Friday 5th July in London.

Monday, 8th July 2019

For the past eight years, the UK200Group has tracked their collective member firms market share in the academies sector amongst England’s market totals. Even though there has been an increase by 824 primary academies in England, UK200Group member firms still hold 70% in this specific market sector, which is a is a 5% increase from 2018.

Andy Malpass, Chairman of the UK200Charities & Education Group which encompasses the Academies Forum, expanded on the UK200Group’s involvement in the Academies sector:

“UK200Group member firms have developed a real depth and breadth of understanding of the Academies Sector, providing invaluable support to Trusts up and down the country. Working with such a large number of Trusts nationally, provides member firms with a thorough understanding of national as well as local issues, and the Group, through its Academies Forum, provides a professional support network to member firms and the Trusts they work with.

“The strength of our Academies offering is reflected in the quality of speakers from the sector who presented at our Academies Conference on Friday. This included representatives from the ESFA and A Government Advisor to the DfE who provided an invaluable insight into the latest developments and thinking”.

There was equally positive feedback about the organisation from Academies members. Carrie Jensen From Forrester Boyd said:

“The information and best practice shared between the UK200Group members in the academy sector is invaluable, so it is great to see that the numbers have remained so high".

UK200Group has 20 member firms that audit over 900 academies including 155 MAT’s. This equates to 12% of registered academies in England. Our connections with the Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and Department of Education (DfE) provide knowledgeable experts who share their skills with our Academies Training Course attendees.
