We advise educational institutions across the UK, including universities, colleges, academies, and independent schools, on all their legal needs. We also act for over 50 charities and not-for-profit organisations both regionally and nationally, a number of which operate in the field of education including Bilton Grange Trust and the Warwick Independent Schools Foundation.

Our education lawyers advise on:

  • Governance
  • School service contracts, outsourcing and consortium arrangements.
  • Employment advice including tribunal representation.
  • School estates and property advice including lettings, acquisitions, sales and licences.
  • Banking and finance.
  • Planning and construction of new buildings and facilities.
  • Temporary event notices and permanent licensing applications.
  • Student litigation advice.
  • School admission, point of law appeals and exclusions.
  • Academy conversions.
  • Capital projects; due diligence; corporate bonds; charitable status.

It is extremely useful to work with someone local, who knows our business and can support us when we need additional expert advice.
