Anthony Collins Solicitors has been shortlisted for two Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT) Diamond Awards.
The specialist team at Anthony Collins Solicitors, in partnership with leading education consultancy D&T Associates, has advised on the conversion of Beacon Hill Academy, Woodside Academy, Kenningtons Primary Academy and Shaw Primary Academy and Belmont Castle Academy in the last six months.
Local school children will benefit from the academies through greater control over the school budget, more flexible curriculums and freedom from Local Authority control. The conversions are the latest in a series of academy projects for Anthony Collins Solicitors and brings the total of schools that it acts for to just short of one hundred and fifty.
Simon Ramshaw, the partner who leads the Education Team at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said: “The conversion of these academies should have a really positive impact on the provision of education in Thurrock. Each of the schools concerned has a record of distinguished success in raising standards. They will now enjoy much greater freedom to continue their mission of delivering the very highest standard of education for their pupils.”
Drs Christine Tinkler and David Daniels, directors at D&T Associates, said: “We’re very pleased the academy conversions were completed smoothly with the assistance of Thurrock Local Authority and the head teachers are all very happy with the result. In a time when the education sector is experiencing a wide range of changes, these schools will be able to continue delivering an extremely high standard of teaching, sustaining their individual ethos supported by strong resources and a good pipeline of funding.”
