There are other sponsors that have decided to consolidate their growth, preferring to focus on improving the performance of their open academies. The Department does not record these centrally.
This Government are tough on under-performance wherever it occurs—be it in council-run schools or in academy chains.

Only when sponsors have demonstrated this are they then able to take on new academies.
