ACADEMY CONVERSION AND SUPPORT

We can help you understand academy status to make an informed decision about whether to convert. If you do (and many schools we work with do not convert), we can manage your conversion. We've helped 40 mainstream and special schools convert, and many more to investigate. We work with Headteachers and Governing Bodies to evaluate and manage the technical aspects, leaving you to lead your school. 


We can also help your trust grow, whether forming a MAT or growing one. We help develop your vision and strategy, ensure that governance structures and schemes of delegation support that vision, manage due diligence of potential new schools, and manage conversion of joining schools.  

FREE SCHOOL APPLICATIONS

We can support the development of free school applications, or act as a critical friend to challenge your thinking. We've managed successful primary, secondary, and alternative provision applications, and have and are managing implementations of free schools following approval. Our involvement helps you have confidence it's all progressing well while you focus on the key issues of curriculum, site, headteacher recruitment, and student recruitment. 

SCHOOL ORGANISATION AND PUPIL PLACE PLANNING

We can review or produce mainstream and SEN projections, and interogate data to investigate locality or council issues. We can help in all aspects of school organisation, including reviewing provision, proposing future options, engaging with schools and partners, and managing consultations. We have supported changes to primary, secondary, special, and alternative provision, and worked for schools, academies, councils and diocese.  We have experience developing capital strategy and planning, procuring and delivery of capital projects.
