Are academy schools successful?

Just a curious question but I thought I'd share my experience of going to an academy:

I had more than 8 science teachers in 2 years at GCSE because they all kept leaving - we were told by the school we only had ourselves to blame if we didn't do well because we didn't work hard enough.

I did higher tier GCSE Maths but a couple of weeks before my 1st GCSE exam the school move our whole class down to Foundation Tier because they were concerned not enough of us would pass. They never told parents, and when I asked they said they "forgot" as it was the Easter holidays.

Just wanted to know if anyone else had experienced anything similar to me at an academy school and if you agree that they are turning out to be an educational disaster.
