Tollbar Academy's revenue funding for academic year 2013/14 is higher than other academies in the area because they have a higher number of pupils, 2,168 in total, over double that of most of the other academies. Tollbar Academy has the lowest level of per pupil funding of all of the academies in the local authority area. The pre-16 revenue funding for all open academies, free schools and maintained schools is calculated using the local authority funding formula and for those with sixth forms their funding is calculated using the national funding formula.
