Academy Conversion / MAT

The conversion process towards becoming an Academy, whether as a single stand-alone school or with a view to joining a Multi Academy Trust (MAT), is now a well-trodden path. There are a number of options ranging from the very simple off-the-shelf conversion of a single school to the creation of a complex Trust structure with numerous schools operating under its wing. Judicium Education experts can assist with the entire process, from initial consideration of all the options available to a single school, to completion of the entire project in line with the objectives of the members.

In particular, we can assist with:

  • Advising you on the optimum structure for your school, whether that be creating a single school Trust or joining an established Multi Academy Trust.
  • If you are seeking to join an existing MAT, we can help you find one that reflects your values and culture.
  • Equally, if you are seeking to create a MAT, we can approach schools on your behalf.

We can manage each stage of the process and liaise with all parties involved including:

  • Managing the legal work involved in creating the initial Limited Company and Trust, transferring land and other assets, dealing with the Funding Agreement and TUPE work.
  • Dealing with the transfer of commercial contracts.
  • Advising on selection of auditors and accounting systems.
  • Advising on Governor roles and responsibilities.

If you would like a confidential discussion on any of the matters listed above please, please contact us on the number above, on enquiries@judicium.com or use the tell me more box below. 

We look forward to hearing from you.
