Academy Trusts

Working with schools and governors on all issues affecting Academies and Schools

If you are considering applying to the Department of Education to convert to become an Academy, then you need to talk to us.

We provide legal advice and support for the schools and their governing body on all aspects of the process of setting up a trust. We prepare and advise on all the contractual documentation required for governance and assist in the negotiation of funding agreements.

Every school will have individual decisions to make. Issues will require resolving: it may be a foundation school with or without a foundation, there may be property and land ownership to sort out or it may be part way through a ‘Building Schools for the Future’ project.

We will be there to help with all the other contractual agreements that are involved, whether its employment or property issues, that crop up. We make the complex simple.
