An essential guide to the legal and regulatory requirements of setting up an Academy school, How to run an Academy school contains numerous examples of good practice from a range of academies and multi-academies. Over 15 chapters it covers all areas of academy governance, starting with a potted history of academies, through to the key areas of responsibility and accountability. It covers all the practical aspects of running an academy once set up: meetings and minutes of governors meetings, financial management, accounts, and corporate governance, to list just some.

Paxton-Doggett is dual-qualified as a solicitor and Chartered Company Secretary. She brings her experience of supporting boards and committees at state-funded schools, to her academies guide. She clearly guides the reader through the complicated areas of gaining Academy status, including detailed information on statutory requirements.
