Expert legal advice for the education sector


Stone King is independently recognised as being one of the top practices in the country for our work in the education and charity sectors.  We have built up an excellent reputation advising on a significant number of academy projects, with members of our team being involved right from the initial launch of the academy programme.  We have supported over 400 schools nationally who have converted to academy status under the Academies Act 2010, and our clients range from large academy chains to small individual academies.  Our team comprises experts in charity, education, property, employment and commercial law, offering school leadership, sponsors, proposer groups and project managers the support they need in all aspects of an academy or free school’s set-up.

We spend time in the early stages learning about the key drivers and priorities for the project, and then work hard to ensure that we are able to provide the legal structure required to deliver this vision.

Once an academy or free school is established, it has particular operational requirements.  We act for a large number of existing academies and free schools, providing a full range of support services.
