Bristol balance tips towards academies

This will bring the number of secondary academies in the city to 12, with the local authority left running just eight. Five primaries are also seeking academy status. Cabinet member for children and young people Councillor Clare Campion-Smith said: "I would want governing bodies becoming academies to consider their responsibility to the wider community and ensure continued public access to facilities."
