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.

The change will be brought in this year, and trusts must provide the DfE with ‘details of income and expenditure, as well as some […]

What our clients say

""Since our initial conversion in 2015 Jeff has worked with us on converting another school into the MAT as well as providing support with due diligence on other schools and academies to make sure that we are fully informed in all aspects of the schools before we agree for other schools to join us. The level of detail and information that Jeff’s team have given us has ensured that our Directors are confident in making informed decisions about our growth strategy. This vital work ensures that we are not risking our existing schools by making poor decisions." "
