Converting to Academy Status & Post Conversion Support
We have supported 70 schools, across the South West and nationally, through their conversion to Academy status.
Having worked closely with school leaders and governors since the launch of the Academy scheme, we have developed an approach that is comprehensive yet flexible enough to adapt to changing guidance and the individual requirements of each school.
We understand that deciding whether or not to undergo the transition to an Academy can be a challenging one and we take time to help schools and governing bodies understand the legal process of conversion, whether through one-to-one meetings, attendance at governors’ meetings or presentations and seminars to a number of schools.
Once schools become academies, we recognise that their priority is to continue to strive to provide an outstanding standard of education for their pupils and are able to provide a range of post-conversion legal support packages designed to support academies to ensure a smooth transition, comply with good practice and manage risks effectively.
