We advise over 500 schools in Hampshire, both local authority maintained and a growing number of academies, in respect of the full range of legal issues that they need to address. Advice can also be provided to maintained schools outside Hampshire regarding conversions to academy status.
We also provide education law advice to local authorities regarding their full range of statutory functions in respect of all aspects of education, including admissions, special educational needs, transport and exclusions.
For schools we have packaged solutions that enable you to budget for the costs of any legal advice that you may require. Whilst our legal services package for schools is offered as part of Hampshire Services’ wider “Services for Schools” programme, qualifying schools can also sign up for legal services on a standalone basis.
