Major academy chain loses control of 10 schools

The Department for Education confirmed that one of the biggest chains of academies in England is to lose control of 10 of its schools. The decision came after Ofsted inspectors raised serious concerns about the performance of some schools run by the E-Act academy chain. E-Act will remain in control of the further 24 academies in its chain, while officials work to find different sponsors for the 10 schools affected.
