Our Education specialists offer practical solutions to a wide range of education providers and local authorities, including community and mainstream, foundation, free schools, special schools and faith schools, pupil referral units, academies and multi academy trusts, colleges, university technical colleges and universities.

What we can do for you

With a wealth of experience working with a variety of education providers, our team of specialists really understand the different issues clients face. This experience allows them to provide commercially sound advice to clients in this fast changing sector.

Maintained Schools

Many maintained schools and academies are moving away from using their local authority’s in-house legal team to ensure that the advice they receive is not conflicted, is impartial and focuses solely on their school’s interests.

Independent Schools

We act for numerous independent schools, including one of the largest group of independent schools in the UK. The extensive experience our lawyers have of this sector and the understanding we have gained of the specific operational needs of independent schools, means we offer prompt and effective legal solutions.

Local Authorities

We work both directly for local authority departments and also with in-house legal teams. We have experience across a range of education matters and can assist in a number of ways, including providing advisory support, drafting responses and if necessary, representation at hearings.
