academy

an educational establishment established and maintained by a person who has entered into an agreement with the Secretary of State so to do, in England and Wales. As well as any special requirements in the contract, the school must have a curriculum that meets the current legal requirements but with an emphasis on a particular subject area or areas as specified in the agreement. It must provide education for pupils of different abilities who are wholly or mainly drawn from the area in which the school is situated. Any payments due under the agreement by the Secretary of State are dependent on the fulfilment of conditions and requirements imposed for the purpose of securing that no charge is made in respect of admission to (or attendance at) the school or, subject to such exceptions as may be specified in the agreement, in respect of education provided at the school.
