Education Solicitors

We have a dedicated team who can provide legal support to schools.


Many of our Partners and solicitors at Poole Alcock have a close association with a number of schools, with several being appointed as school governors.

We also have a dedicated team who can provide a fixed-price package of legal support to schools who are considering conversion to academy status.

We will take the time to visit your school or college without charge, listen to your objectives and will talk you through the complete process of:

  • registration with DofE and consultation
  • application to convert
  • approval
  • opening

In addition to conversion to academy status, our lawyers advise on a wide range of issues which affect schools and colleges on a daily basis, including:

  • buying and selling school assets, particularly land
  • charitable activities
  • data protection, privacy & social media
  • dispute resolution
  • employment law issues
  • health & safety
  • negotiating contracts
  • policies and procedures.
