Michelmores Wins New Free School and Academy Instructions Nationwide

The expertise of the Education Team at Michelmores LLP is being increasingly recognised with a string of high profile instructions across the UK.

The team has been asked to act for the Hereford Board of Education with particular remit of supporting schools converting into the Bishop Anthony Educational Trust.  Michelmores has also been instructed by Toby Young's West London Free School and are supporting Katherine Birbalsingh's Michaela Community School Trust on its application for a new free school in North West London.

In the Westcountry, Michelmores has been appointed to establish a multi academy trust for Kingsbridge Community College in South Devon while the team is working with two Academy Trusts, one in the North West and the South West, to take control of 2 of the 10 schools being relinquished by the E-Act academy chain.

Antony Power, Head of Schools at Michelmores said:

“The education sector is in the midst of massive change and huge opportunity. It is important for all new educational structures to ensure they comply with all the legislation that impacts on them and we are very experienced at supporting them with legal and commercial advice in a complex and demanding process.

“These recent instructions are a testament to the strength of the Michelmores team and demonstrate that we continue to attract clients nationwide.”
