What about new academies being set up from cold?

The picture here is confusing: most new academies (as opposed to conversions from existing maintained schools) are being called (and set up under the label) free school or UTC or studio school, but some are still being called ‘academies’ as before.

For a description of the process of conversion of a maintained school to an academy see this post.

For the process of setting up an ‘academy’ from cold see the description of setting up  a ‘free school‘ in this post – it should be the same (the difference is essentially just in the label).
