SECTOR: Education



Samuel Phillips is a leading national firm in connection with the academy conversion process.

Academy Conversion

Samuel Phillips can count a number of north east educational establishments as regular clients. From this experience we understand the language and priorities of the education sector.


Samuel Phillips Law Firm has extensive experience of providing sound and appropriate advice to schools in relation to legal matters relating to their land and buildings.

Business Support

We know how hard it can be for business managers to run a busy school. This is why we offer our own unique business support package.

We know that you don’t like the “one size fits all” approach as your school, college or university is unique as is the student base. Importantly we listen to head teachers, governors and chancellors before we leap to any hurried response. But note we are not slow in taking action once we have the full understanding and support of our client.

Our dedicated team is one of the most experienced in the region who would welcome an opportunity to work with you.

The Academy Solution

Samuel Phillips has undertaken research, professional training and put in place the key resources to be positioned as one of only a few firms in the region to provide a complete solution for schools wishing to become an Academy.

We understand the risks, importance of sound project management, communication and relationships with pupils, parents, teachers and governors.

Our approach is to build a relationship with you for the long term not the short term and for you to have the first class, value based service that your school deserves. We know Head Teachers and their Deputies work long hours and want to have answers at a time when many may be “out of office”. With Samuel Phillips you’d receive our personal attention and contact information for the key experts ensuring you’re never far from the all important answer.

If you need a legal solution for your conversion select Samuel Phillips as part of your Academy team. We’ve got it covered.
