Academies and Free Schools in Somerset



Get information about schools (GIAS) is a government website with a register of all schools and colleges in England.

Main News Story

GIAS (https://get-information-schools.service.gov.uk/) can be used as a  lookup tool  for  information on schools and establishment groups (such as a local authority, trust or federation) or governors. It will confirm whether a school has converted to academy status and if part of a MAT (multi-academy trust) the other academies within  the Trust. There is a facility on GIAS to download reports on Somerset schools.  Schools and academy trusts can also update details by signing in to their DfE Sign-in account.

The DfE publishes information on all academies, free schools, open in England, and those in the process of opening.   https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/open-academies-and-academy-projects-in-development

Following confirmation from the DfE that a school has formally applied to convert to academy status, a Somerset list  is compiled which can be found published on iPost.  IPOSTID-2-290​
