P.S I realise I should have said I will leave at Easter whatever the case, not Feb.
If the new school is happy for you to start in Jan then there is nothing your current school can do to stop you going. The main sanction is a bad reference, if will you needed one from your old school in the future.
In theory your school could sue for breach of contract, but it has never happened ever as there is no financial loss incurred by the school.
You just need to play the game and negotiate an early exit so you can leave on good terms with everyone.
Your contract (and, therefore, the notice periods) would have transferred with you to the Academy.
