Academies & Education


Our experts deliver valuable advice to educational institutions including independent and voluntary aided schools, as well as new academies created by the coalition government.

As registered charities, independent schools and academies face very similar financial issues.

These relate to financial systems and internal reporting, as well as regulatory requirements for statutory accounts and specialist auditing.

We can help in a number of crucial areas:

  • As budgets come under more and more pressure, our extensive experience of advising charities and not-for-profit organisations delivers substantial and sustainable financial benefits.
  • We have assisted independent schools, voluntary aided schools, and an increasing number of academies, through our integrated service range that encompasses statutory audit, budgeting, tax, VAT, and cash flow planning.
  • Our hands-on approach to working with our clients starts with a specialist education sector partner who remains the primary point of contact and is responsible for building a close, productive relationship.
  • This partner-led service is supported by our experienced and knowledgeable charity sector team, which includes expert advisors with strong track records of working with not-for-profit and educational establishments.
