Our Aim & Goal

Our aim is to give you clarity over where you stand, whether you have grounds for a challenge, and the likelihood of securing the outcome you want to see. Our education law advisors can then provide step-by-step guidance through every stage of raising an issue.


Wherever possible, we will seek to agree a positive solution amicably with the educational institution in question. However, in cases where this is not possible, we are willing and able to take robust action to ensure your rights or those of your child are protected.


We offer a fixed fee initial consultation with our team to discuss your needs and see how we can help. We then charge for our services on a fixed fee basis, providing certainty over the costs involved.


For expert help with any aspect of education law for individuals, please contact our education law consultant on 01227 913852 or email


Please note: we are only able to take on cases on a privately paying basis. If you are unable to privately fund your case or you looking for general guidance on what actions you can take to protect you or your child’s education rights, you can refer to the Education section of the Citizens Advice website.
