Start Right - Academy and MAT conversion services from Babcock Education and Michelmores 

Start Right is our academy conversion service working in partnership with Michelmores (award winning law firm). 

Start Right 
You know better than we do that the education landscape is changing. Government Policy is focused on the development of a self-improving system where schools work together to share knowledge and expertise in order to sustain improved outcomes. This presents a great opportunity for schools to collaborate and pool their strengths. The multi-academy trust (MAT) model provides a platform for this.
In a similar style Babcock Education and Michelmores' Education team are collaborating to provide a comprehensive academy start-up service – whether it's a straight conversion or a group of academies joining forces in a MAT. Between us we have worked with over 2000 schools across the country and are keen to share our expertise and experience with you.

The services provided under our Start Right package are:

  • Vision shaping;
  • Conversion process;
  • School improvement strategy planning;
  • Finance;
  • Company secretarial; and
  • JustAsk – general retainer
