Sectors /Accountants for Schools and Academies

With more and more schools making the decision to convert to Academy status, getting accountancy and business advice from experts who have been working on conversions with schools is key.

We represented the first primary school in the East Riding. More recently we have been advising Hull's first Free School, The Boulevard Academy Trust, on the accounting, reporting and regularity requirements through the construction phase and following its successful opening in September 2013.

Conversion, or starting from new, takes head teachers, Governors and school business managers into very new territory and a great deal of guidance is needed from ourselves. Academy status provides financial freedom, but does also bring accountability, corporate governance and responsibility for public funds. Academies have legal status as companies; they are charities and SMEs whose business is education.

We also assist schools with payroll, tax, VAT, PAYE and bookkeeping.

Partner John Gilleard, who holds an Enhanced CRC from the Disclosure and Barring Service and who is also a member of the Corporation of Wyke Sixth Form College, leads the Academies financial work  He will be more than happy to speak to any school or Governing Body to arrange an initial consultation. Please contact him on 01482 326617 or jgilleard@duttonmoore.co.uk.
