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 for an initial discussion.
