Academy Conversions

 

Our team includes professionals who all sit on Trust Boards and governing bodies. It means that we look at things differently. We see conversion from the perspective of the school, not just from a business point of view.

Whereas many see the Academy Conversion Grant as the funding purely for the transfer, we have a different perspective. The key motivation when J & G Marshall was established was finding a way carry out conversions more effectively and efficiently so that the set-up grant could also be directed to the classroom where possible.

Our single fee structure ensures that conversion grants can support education outcomes, rather than being swallowed up by legal fees and administration.

"Governors and senior leaders were asked deep and probing questions about their strategic leadership and the way it impacts on the school. They felt the high-quality report accurately reflected the strengths of the governing board and provided clear areas for development. The whole process felt like a partnership and an excellent CPD opportunity for all involved."
