As a top 20 accountancy business advisory firm offering services to academies in the UK, our experienced team of Academy specialists has been on hand to successfully guide schools through the entire academy conversion process from start to finish since the Academies Programme began in 2000, and more recently working with newer converter academies since the passing of the Academies Act in 2010.

As your preferred accountants and business advisers, Wilkins Kennedy offers you support from the outset, sharing our vast knowledge of this sector and ensuring you plan your finances effectively to make the most of your conversion and benefit from all the opportunities and funding available to you.

We work with all types of academies including both primary and secondary schools, sponsored academies and converter academies, recognising that every academy has different needs and requires a different level of support.

Services we can offer academies include:

Academies E-Briefs
