Considering becoming an academy?
Fixed price conversions for £11,500+VAT



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 Trust Boards and 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. Whether it be a MAT Growth Audit, MAT MOT, Due Diligence or even a Merger, we are with you throughout the whole process.

To find out more, read what the schools and academies who work with us have to say. J & G Marshall is a true partner.

J&G Marshall Ltd is proud to be The Official Trust Growth Partner of The Multi Academy Trust Association.

Two-time Recipient of the E2 Media Award of Excellence as the Academy Conversion Provider of the Year 2022 & 2023.

What we're talking about

When we converted our first school in late 2010, little did we think over 11 years later we would have helped nearly 300 schools in their journey to academy status. […]

What our clients say

""Thank you for all of your support through the Academy conversion. I have been particularly impressed with the support and guidance that you provided us, as an individual school, before making our decision to convert. You and your team have always been available to answer questions and queries along the way (no matter what time of day/night). We really couldn’t have done it without you! We are really looking forward to working with you in the future, and we know that we will continue to receive first class support from your professional team. Thanks again.""
