We converted in June 2017 and formed a Multi Academy Trust. The process had been challenging, devoting as much time as possible to getting the Trust going to ensure a smooth transition. We knew we needed assistance with the required reporting and financial accounting elements of being an Academy; and Alan Patient were incredibly supportive with this process and ensured we met the strict deadlines, they were also able to provide good advice and support with Trustee meetings and Annual Audit requirements.
Alan Patient & Co were able to provide a list of all the deadlines we would need to meet from conversion through to our ongoing annual reporting requirements. They also provided input on how they could assist us and gave an agreed fee up front meaning we could plan and budget their costs without any nasty surprises. Their support and guidance through this process has been invaluable and based on our experience would recommend to any school about to convert to an Academy.
