Independent Schools

Independent schools play a key role in the education sector, promoting excellence, diversity and opportunity. Constituted as Companies Limited by Guarantee or Trusts, they operate within the full regulatory spheres of company and/or charity law and taxation, in addition to the core regulatory requirements of the education sector itself.

The opportunities and challenges faced in delivery excellence in education, pastoral support and diversity of opportunity sit alongside those of long-term financial viability and sustainability.

With its rapidly changing landscape and external challenges, it is crucial to select professional advisors with expertise and experience to provide you with support and advice you can rely on.

I have enjoyed working with WR since we moved over and always found the team helpful and eager to assist when I have a query. During fieldwork the teams we have had on site have always been friendly and courteous and keen to understand why we work in the way we do so they can better interrogate the information we provide them.
