Academies & Schools Contracts

Commercial Contracts for Schools and Academy Trusts

As part of their day to day operational life, schools and academy trusts will enter into a wide range of commercial agreements with third party suppliers and contractors.

When considering entering into an agreement with a third party there are a number of considerations that need to be taken into account, including public procurement issues, the form that the agreement should take, the commercial background and the intention of the parties.
