More and more schools are taking the decision to convert to Academy status. Getting advice from someone who has experienced the conversion from a local authority led school to that of an Academy is vital.

A whole new range of responsibilities arise for a new Academy as a result of its new status as a Limited Company and Charity.

Fawley Judge & Easton can help you meet that challenge. Our Academies partner Duncan Gilmour is the Chairman of an Ofsted rated outstanding Academy trust and he has the experience of the conversion process and its particular issues from the school’s perspective.
