We hope that the conversion to Academy status will be the beginning of a long relationship between your school and our firm. As the Academy becomes established, we will work with you to provide ongoing post Academy legal advice and support, advising on employment, land matters, endowment trusts and school admissions. We can offer a support package to meet your school’s needs, including fixed fees or annual legal retainers. Many of the issues that an academy faces are also common to independent schools.
Our Employment and HR team can assist and advise on personnel issues and provide in-house training, as required, in order to help you avoid any pitfalls.
We would envisage developing a far reaching partnership that offers many benefits to your school community, including careers counselling events for your students and, where appropriate, visits to our offices for them to learn more about the opportunities provided by the legal profession.
