Legal services for Schools and Academies

Finding time to focus, plan and lead your team isn’t easy. Especially with mind-boggling legal issues slowing you down. Fortunately, that’s where we can help.

From independent and free schools to multi-academy trusts, our specialist team has worked with every type of institution on every type of legal issue. Just this past 12 months, we’ve advised on tribunal claims, property issues, safeguarding, Ofsted inspections, contracting issues, disciplinary and grievance procedures and Equality Act issues, to name but a few. And we’ve helped over 100 schools become academies in the North East alone.

Many of our lawyers are also school governors, so we genuinely understand the challenges you’re facing, particularly finance. That’s why we’ve developed some flexible, fixed cost packages especially for schools and academies, so you’ll never be over budget. A tailored service for a price that’s off the peg.

It all measures up to helping you deliver what matters most. Education.
