Over recent years, education systems across the globe have experimented with the concept of the autonomous school. As this radical trend in policy gains momentum, Inside the Autonomous School considers whether the model is achieving its desired aims. Drawing on evidence from an in-depth, longitudinal study of an academy in England, this book traces the developments which took place in the school on its journey from 'failing', to achieving an inspection rating of 'outstanding'. The authors present a rich first-hand account of the impacts that various policies have had on the school and situate analyses within a wider national and international context.
