Church & Faith Schools

1 in 4 primary schools and 1 in 16 secondary schools in England have a Church of England designation. There are over 140 Church of Wales schools in Wales.

We are able to offer a depth of experience in the church education sector which is unparalleled. We currently act or have acted for the majority of dioceses in both the Church of England and Church in Wales in respect of their education work, as well as for the Church of England Education Office in relation to education law matters generally.  This enables us to keep fully up-to-date with all the various issues and immediate pressures being faced both in England and in Wales. 

We are also experienced with assisting other faith education providers, many of which face similar challenges to those faced by the Church of England.
