We have been involved in the academy programme since 2002 and have assisted with the conversion of well over 100 schools to academies and free schools, helping a diverse range of proposers/sponsors and we have worked with over 500 multi-academy trust leaders.
We have a strong record of supporting individual academies, free schools and multi-academy trusts (MATs) to navigate the intricate structural, cultural and governance challenges in the education system. We can build the capacity of your leadership team, ultimately raising outcomes for young people.
Managing the detail to lighten your load
In under five months we assisted a group of seven schools to convert to academies, creating a new multi-academy trust. Working in partnership, we saved the schools money and time, reducing risks and increasing efficiency to advance best practice.
Expertise to augment your leadership team
We work in partnership with many academy trusts, providing strategic support, advice, facilitation and training to trustees, local governor and senior executives involved in leading and managing the trust.
In our experience, success depends on the responsiveness and flexibility to adapt to the context of the local community, its beliefs and values.
At the leading edge of teaching
Providing impartial and strategic advice, we’ll work across the range of responsibility throughout your organisation.
We have provided expert advice on educational practice, procurement and recruitment alongside development of school improvement strategies and performance management for headteachers and principals.
