Legal advice and support for independent schools in the UK and overseas

Every independent school is unique, but each one needs sound, practical solutions for the legal and regulatory challenges it faces on a daily basis.

We are trusted Legal Advisers to Senior Leaders and Governors of leading Independent Schools of all shapes and sizes, providing advice and support on all the key legal and strategic issues arising from normal operations and plans for future development and expansion.

We understand how the sector is regulated

We have strong relationships with the associations which support Independent Schools, such as ISBA, HMC, AGBIS, BSA and IAPS. We are regularly asked to speak at conferences and other sector events.

Whether your school is a small, single sex day prep school or a large, senior co-ed boarding school, we have the expertise and experience to support you.
