There are many different types of school operating outside of LEA control requiring accountancy assistance:
- Independent schools
- Foundation/trust schools
- Voluntary aided schools
- City technology colleges
- Free schools
We established our education accountants team to provide proactive advice and hands-on support for schools. We work to the highest professional standards and deliver, in a friendly manner, through our prompt and flexible approach at a local level. We aim to provide a service tailored to a school’s identity and specific requirements. You are not treated in a ‘one size fits all’ approach but as a unique client with defined needs.

In association with Forrester Boyd and Garbutt & Elliott, we are a founder member of ‘Academies of the East’. Acting for more than 60 schools, this group of professional accountants provides dedicated expertise to Academies at all stages based on what the individual School or Academy requires. We can provide everything from a requirement to meet legislation only, through to the provision of dedicated staff.
Meeting with one of our education accountants for a free initial consultation should be your starting point. This will enable you to explain your circumstances to us and identify the areas in which you require assistance.
