We work with hundreds of academies across the country. So whether your school is considering academy status or you’ve already begun the process, visit our dedicated website or call 03333 21 9000 for more information.

Bishop Fleming is one of the UK’s leading accountants to academy schools. We work with over 400 new style academy primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and multi-academy trusts, as well as a number of free schools, alternative provision academies, special schools, Studio Schools and UTC’s. Academies benefit from greater freedoms to innovate and raise standards.

However, freedom from Local Authority control means that academies have many more decisions to make so it helps to have advisers who have seen it all before to guide you through the process and make it as straight forward as possible. As specialist academy accountants, we provide a full-service offering including non-audit and audit support services pre-conversion, during conversion and post conversion. We’ve gained a lot of expertise and we want to share this knowledge with you.
