Working with schools, helping with academy conversion and more

Perducta have many years experience working within the education sector. We have supported individual schools when considering converting to academy status, and through the conversion process we have also helped them with raising capital and delivering building projects.

The government’s decision to allow all schools to convert to academies has been received with mixed views and many head teachers, governors and parents feel confused and daunted by the conversion process. Perducta’s experience and understanding of the workings of Local Authorities, Schools and the Department for Education enable us to help the schools navigate through any queries and concerns they may have.
