How we can help you

Schools and academies are faced with many challenges that arise from various laws & regulations, and it can take your focus away from what matters most. Our team of education law solicitors are dedicated to providing legal expertise across a range of areas for schools:


HY Education provides education solicitor services to schools which offer a truly one-stop shop for all your legal requirements, from employment law and safeguarding, to academisation and health & safety.

Data Protection Officer

HY Education provides a Data Protection Officer service specifically tailored to your school.

Under the GDPR, practically all schools will be required by law to designate a DPO.

As experts in data protection for schools, HY Education removes the burden of finding someone within your organisation with the right skill, knowledge and independence to carry out the role.

HR Support

Our education law solicitors and HR practitioners also offer HR support as an additional service to schools. We understand that staff are involved in many things when running a school and personnel issues can often be time-consuming.

Having that extra support to give you the confidence to carry out internal processes is important. From discipline and grievance handling to absence management, we work closely with school leaders to deliver strategic HR advice that is tailored to their unique requirements.

Employment Tribunal Protection

Employment tribunals can be costly, ranging from £10-£50k depending on the individual claim. With budgets already stretched, these unforeseen costs can significantly impact other areas of the school where the money could be better spent.

Our Employment Tribunal Protection service gives you expert legal representation at every stage of the tribunal process for just a low additional monthly payment. Unlike insurance, we cover all the legal work in the event you receive a claim and therefore you can guarantee quality of service by a team of education solicitors that know your school.
