Independent Schools

We are trusted legal advisers to a number of large and well known independent schools in the South West and we have a wealth of experience in education law and best practice. We understand that independent schools often face complex legal issues, which can also have far reaching consequences for a school’s reputation.

As a local firm, we have strong ties in the community. We always take the time to meet with our clients face to face, to fully understand their requirements so that we can effectively deal with any concerns or queries.

Our Education team has extensive knowledge of working with independent schools in the South West. Examples of work undertaken by our specialists in this field include:

Several members of our team are governors, or have been on the board of governors for schools locally. Porter Dodson demonstrates its commitment to education and training through its involvement in careers fairs and participation in workshops and training days in schools and colleges.
