Our experience

All staff are governors (or Chairs) at local schools and academies and our company Director has strong links with the NGA as a Leading Governance Partner.

Our core focus is to support schools to keep abreast of their governance and business compliance functions.  We are expertly placed to provide support, with a robust understanding of both academic and business requirements in an educational setting, and how they must be streamlined to promote best practice and continued development. 

The requirements on academies and trusts to operate as corporate businesses as well as academic institutions is ever increasing meaning the pressures on leaders to ensure compliance, best practice management and oversight is a growing one.


Educational Governance is everchanging with increasing responsibilities on those who volunteer in these strategic roles.  Accessing the most up to date and best practice advice and guidance is vital, combined with a robust governance support service that records strategic decisions accurately, provides evidence that your academy governance is fulfilling its core functions of:

» Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

» Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and

» Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.
