Find Academy Conversion Consultants for Schools

Academisation Support

For schools looking to convert to an academy, the process can often be complex, challenging and time consuming. No two academy conversions are the same and each individual school’s application process will be unique, running into potential hurdles and complication at various stages along the way.

Using professional academy conversion consultants services can provide you with the help and support you need to simplify the process, navigate through the complex paperwork and legalities and help keep you on a smooth, swift path to successful academisation.

What Is An Academy?

An Academy is a state funded school, funded directly by central government and therefore independent of local authorities. They tend to have a lot more freedoms than schools under the local authority and are able to set their own term times, control their own admissions process and even the curriculum.

When a school becomes an Academy, it is then run by a Charitable Trust and the school employees transfer over to it, however, on a day to day basis everything is still managed by the Headteacher who is then referred to as a principle.

Can I Apply For The Academisation Process Myself?

Yes. A headteacher or chair of governors representing a local authority maintained school can apply for academisation themselves. However, the process involves a series of applications, notifications, transfers of responsibilities, preparations, actions and paperwork which are by no means straight forward and can often be hindered and delayed by legal barriers along the way.

With specialised support from professional academy conversion consultants for schools, you will have the support and guidance of reliable, trusted and experienced advisors who will help to simplify the process for you and assist you every step of the way from registration through to completion.
