It has been another difficult few weeks for many of us, especially those who find themselves under tier 3 restrictions.
As the Church responds to the challenges and opportunities identified in the recent Chadwick Report (‘The Church School of the Future Review’) the need for specialist support becomes more and more evident. During the last six months the Education Team at Anthony Collins Solicitors has seen significant growth in the number of enquiries from Dioceses seeking expert legal and strategic resource.
These latest appointments follow the team being instructed by both Coventry and Gloucester Dioceses earlier this year.
Simon Ramshaw, the partner who leads the Education Team, said: "It's fantastic to see the way the Church is working together so positively to help shape the future of education in the UK. Both Dioceses have a deeply ingrained commitment to secure the future of distinctive Christian education, and it’s a real privilege for us to serve the Church in its ongoing mission."
Jackie Hughes, Diocesan Director of Education at Birmingham, commented:
We’re delighted to be working with Anthony Collins Solicitors. We have shared values and a common objective to enhance the provision of high quality Christian education. It’s good to see their refreshing approach in bringing fresh ideas and thinking to the table.
Clare Meese, Diocesan Director of Education at Southwell and Nottingham, said: "As a Diocese we are committed to building up schools which provide high standards of education, excellent teaching staff and conscientious students. Our ongoing Academy Programme enables us to channel the necessary resources into the right schools to really develop the education offering in our area."
