Lee Bolton Monier-Williams Guidance

Converting into an Academy

This guidance is of a general nature only. It cannot take account of all possible local circumstances or of the varied nature of existing trust deeds and trusteeship arrangements. It is intended to guide you as to the process you should follow but is not a substitute for the detailed legal advice and procedures that all parties (governing bodies, trustees, bodies appointing foundation governors and relevant religious authorities) will need to commission and undertake.

There are issues in the conversion process that might prove to be matters of contention between the parties. If this proves the case the parties should seek separate legal advice in such circumstances.
