The message from our schools who have converted to academy status is clear: they trust an education legal services provider to deliver on the technical aspects of the process, but what truly sets a law firm apart is good communication and a focus on meeting targets within given timescales. We strive to provide effective and all-encompassing education solicitor services to allow you to focus on the things that matter most.
Legal advice for schools surrounding academisation can be a complex issue, and getting things wrong can be costly. Our dedicated team of education solicitors are here to support your school at a cost that works for you. We understand budgets can be limited, and whether you are a small rural school looking to convert to academy status or a large academy working towards becoming a multi-trust academy we can assist in a number of areas to help you to achieve these goals within your budget.
By using HY Education for your school’s conversion, you can be confident in achieving a seamless transfer of responsibilities. Moreover, we understand that every conversion represents a significant step in a school’s future. Ensuring that a school feels fully supported and is set up correctly from the outset of the change is paramount to our approach.
