Advice on Complex Admissions Issues

We also have experience of advising schools on more complex issues such as receipt from parents of misleading or fraudulent admissions applications, advising academies on admissions requirements contained within their Funding Agreements, and Equality Act requirements when making admissions decisions.


Expert Legal Advice and Support

On average the Admissions Codes are revised every two years. Our specialist lawyers are frequently invited to write and present on legislative revisions, which ensures that we keep you up to date on these important developments.


For specialist advice on school admissions, please contact Yvonne Spencer on 0207 665 0870, or Tracey Eldridge-Hinmers on 020 7665 0802, for an initial discussion.

Technically impressive and good at providing practical advice in plain English.
