Working with you

We advise a wide range of educational bodies from those providing primary education through to tertiary level.

We advise maintained and independent schools on a wide range of issues and disputes.  A number of partners are experienced school governors in  both sectors and have a wide range of experience in governance and policy areas.

The range of legal advice required by educational bodies has increased over recent years and we can assist with all problems ranging from those relating to the campus and property, policy and governance, compliance and educational provision through to discipline and discrimination.

We are familiar with the establishment and requirements of academies, compliance both within the maintained and independent sectors, the obligations of charitable bodies and corporate governance. 

Our team comprises specialists from various parts of the practice with expert knowledge of the law which affects educational bodies.
