Acting for over 450 educational establishments has taught us that schools and colleges face a challenging combination of financial pressures and government legislation, against the backdrop of their own internal pressures and the relentless pursuit of improvement and improved student
and pupil outcomes.

We understand schools. We know that school and college leaders and governors need responsive advice on a vast array of issues. Our dedicated Education Group have developed a comprehensive range of legal services and solutions focused specifically on the objectives of education establishments.

Our education clients tell us that they appreciate insightful, pragmatic and outcome-driven advice in plain English - and that's exactly what we deliver.

Building relationships from the outset is really important to the way we work, working with our clients rather than for them. We pride ourselves on our friendly and approachable style and strive to establish a good working rapport with our client base; becoming a key part of their team.

We are responsive, interested and proactive. Being immersed in the education sector we plot trends and spot opportunities so we can recommend training to address any recurring issues. Our objective is to upskill our clients so that they can confidently handle more themselves - and for when they need a second opinion, we're there as a virtual extension of their own team. We live and breathe ideas, improve and innovate, simply we don't just see ourselves as legal advisors but here to guide and add value to our clients' journeys.

Our education group is made up of specialist lawyers with extensive experience in dealing with all forms of the law, including:

  • Academy Conversions
  • Child Protection & Safeguarding
  • Commercial Contracts
  • Construction
  • Data Protection
  • Disputes
