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.

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

What we're talking about

I started talking about the building blocks of the academy programme in 2013 as the number of conversions continued to grow. By then, we’d had three years of schools looking over the fence and liking what they saw. Conversion numbers grew, the programme gained strength and and the sector gained credence – not in all […]

Newspaper headline writers have had quite a bit to focus on in 2019. There is a little thing called Brexit, Mr Trump’s wall and the driving ability of members of Royalty have all captured the front pages. You could be forgiven for thinking that there was little else of significance going on in public policy. […]

What our clients say

"J&G were integral to ensuring our conversion process was smooth. With five schools all converting at once, the process was handled really effectively, efficiently and successfully. It was however, the support which was given at every stage of the process which impressed us the most. No question was too sillly, no email was sent too late at night and all calls were responded to quickly. As complete newcomers to the Academy world we were guided the whole way and the Heads of all the schools involved cannot speak highly enough of the personal service we received."
