The education landscape seems to be ever changing.  Our team of experienced lawyers can assist and advise you on all aspects of forming partnerships with other schools, from informal collaborations to multi academy trusts (MATs).  We can help ensure schools maximise their opportunities when it comes to the increased autonomy and responsibility on offer.

We offer a wide range of services and advice, not just on the mechanics of academy conversion but also support in delivering your vision and dealing with day to day matters post conversion.

We have experience of large and small MATs, trust and free schools, and were responsible for what remains the biggest simultaneous conversion of schools into a MAT.  We offer practical and pragmatic advice to schools who are considering conversion and to established MATs who are looking at opportunities to engage with other schools.

Expert advice from Amy Laver, Solicitor & Associate at Tozers LLP.

  • academy group structures
  • conversion from school to academy status
  • governance
  • employment, HR and pension issues
  • commercial contracts
  • property and planning
  • intellectual property
