Considering becoming an academy?

J & G Marshall Ltd was created to help schools not just understand the academy conversion process, but to navigate successfully and effectively through it.

Our philosophy is simple – our team all sit on governing bodies.  As a result, we see the process from the point of view of the schools, not the policy makers. We help senior leaders to continue to focus on education outcomes, while we handle the tasks, paperwork and hurdles that can come with conversion.

Furthermore, our support grows with you. We have the credentials and experience to help academies and MATs grow and flourish. We highlight your strengths and signpost areas to develop before they become critical concerns. This understanding is a vital part of a healthy academy trust.

David Carter, the National Schools Commissioner, has hinted at a new, potentially game changing, policy at a Church of England schools training event last week. The basic premise of what has been reported is that, instead of a school joining a MAT hook, line and sinker based on a few meetings and some serious Googling, […]
