Education Team

Our newly formed Education team headed up by Sarah Baldwin is gaining great traction in representing schools, academies and multi academy trusts nationally.  We have extensive experience in helping schools convert to academy status under the Academies Act 2010 and also in assisting Multi Academy Trusts with new joiners, land issues and governance advice.

We not only understand the legal requirements of academies but also have first hand experience of school operations and governance from the inside.  Thus we can work with you to ensure a clear understanding of what you need to operate effectively.

We can help with

  • converting to an academy;
  • setting up a free school;
  • dealing with land issues;
  • governance structures including schemes of delegation, policies and procedures post conversion.
