We act for a number of academies and are advising schools on their conversion to academies.

We are here to provide the best advice and service we possibly can. This is at the centre of everything that we do. Understanding your needs and objectives means we can deliver an outstanding, cost effective service.

Academy conversion

"Can I just say how brilliant your team has been in helping us through our academy conversion. They have certainly looked after us well and I am so pleased we engaged Muckle!"

Academy conversion

"We engaged Muckle LLP to oversee the legal element of its conversion to Academy status. The service we have received has been exceptionally professional and efficient, with all involved taking time to communicate with the school personally and to talk through measures. At crucial times, personnel have attended meetings at Park View, presenting to governors and providing updates to senior staff, as well as working alongside us on issues which are pertinent and, perhaps, unique to our situation.  All have been knowledgeable and exceptionally personable, providing valuable legal advice without ever being patronising or condescending."
