Aldborough E-Act Free School could be changing hands after their sponsor was urged to drop 10 of its institutions by the government.

E-Act was given the warning after concerns were raised by Ofsted inspectors about their ability to adequately support their 34 schools.

The Seven Kings school became the first free school in London when it opened in September 2011 and was rated “good” by Ofsted as recently as March 2013.

The organisation refused to confirm or deny whether or not the school would be handed over to a new sponsor and school staff declined to comment.

The Department for Education will work with E-Act to help find new sponsors for the schools.
