All Schools to Convert to Become an Academy

The Government have announced that all schools are to convert to Academies and ultimately join Multi Academy Trusts.

For many schools this will pose new challenges – Initially in how they demonstrate due diligence during the conversion process and then how they manage their property portfolio.

CBC Education have been successfully assisting Academies with their property related matters for many years.

As with any change it’s important for school Governors to have a clear understanding of the various risks and liabilities posed by the new arrangement.  Undertaking a property survey is a key element to this.

As Chartered Building Surveyors, who specialise in the education sector, CBC Education can assist schools with this important work.  We undertake surveys that have real value.  The information we collect will inform schools on the condition of the premises.  With this information newly formed Academies are able to understand their liabilities but also plan for the future.  CBC Education also have an enviable record in obtaining grant funding for capital works for Academies.

If you are thinking of becoming an Academy or Multi Academy Trust, please contact Mark Brothwell on 01934 710 789 or for an informal discussion about how we may be able to assist.
