What's in it for them?

The Department for Children, Schools and Families has prepared a number of webpages about Academies.

Following the links it is possible to find the definition,

"[a]cademies are all-ability, state-funded schools established and managed by sponsors from a wide range of backgrounds, including high performing schools and colleges, universities, individual philanthropists, businesses, the voluntary sector, and the faith communities. Some are established educational providers, and all of them bring a record of success in other enterprises which they are able to apply to their Academies in partnership with experienced school managers.".

One such academy is Castle View who are sponsored to the tune of £1.35 million over five years by Northumbrian Water Limited (NWL).

Why?

What's in it for NWL and what do they know about education?
