Green, E.H. (2014) "The Negotiation and Articulation of Identity, Position and Ethos in Joint Church Academies." Research Papers in Education, https://doi.org/10.1080/02671522.2014.885727.
This paper summarises the key findings of a research project into the identity,
position and ethos of jointly sponsored church academies. The research sought to investigate
how joint church academies are situated within the field, how they relate to existing
academies and the maintained church school sector and how they articulate their vision and
ethos. Using a case study approach and drawing on open interviews, documentary analysis
and non-participant observation the researcher had the unique opportunity to document the
process of opening two joint church academies and to compare this with data from a more
established joint church academy. The research questions were: how do jointly sponsored
academies articulate their objectives and Christian ethos and, what is the relationship between
school structures and the ethos of the academy?
