The Forbes team take a hands-on approach to academy conversions, guiding SLT and governing bodies through the process from start to finish. We tailor our advice to your organisation, ensuring that you have the best possible result based on your desired outcomes. We can advise on the range of available models to suit you: whether establishing an individual academy, forming or joining a multi-academy trust, or establishing a free school. We believe that the key to a successful conversion is planning and careful control; to that end with any of our clients considering conversion we appoint one of the partners in the Education team to act as overall 'project manager', to lead and guide you through the process from start to finish.
The project manager works in partnership with you, ensuring a seamless, hassle free service. Because of our long history of working both with individual Schools and with LEAs, we are uniquely placed to provide pragmatic advice to ensure your conversion is achieved effectively. Our aim is to ensure an efficient process with the stated outcome of keeping disruption and uncertainty to a minimum. To that end, we actively agree a plan at an early stage with built-in Key Performance Indicators so that Schools know exactly when to expect from the service Forbes provide. A key part of this is the provision of a fixed price for conversion, to provide Schools with certainty and a top class service at a competitive price.
