Running a school can be a demanding job - and we appreciate that there are many elements to factor in on a day-to-day basis from a legal perspective. As an educational establishment, there are certain processes you need to go through in order to ensure you are legally covered with all aspects of operating your school.

Contact our education solicitors for legal guidance.

Many independent schools choose Crombie Wilkinson’s education solicitors to offer legal advice, whether it’s in York, Malton, Selby, Pickering or elsewhere in the UK.

Our solicitors can offer legal advice to fee-paying schools with regard to the following:


Our expert education solicitors will provide the necessary advice to ensure contracts are legally correct before they are issued. We can draft the contracts and tailor our advice to individual areas of the school system, for example, a new teacher that joins the school permanently or temporary addition to the staff list.

Property Management

Our property management services for schools cover all aspects of buying, selling and letting to ensure you have the best legal advice that serves your school well now and in the future.


Sometimes in education, there are often disputes to deal with. This can be an employment dispute or late school fees. Our dispute resolution solicitors will work with you to minimise these issues and, if they do arise, we’ll offer professional advice to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.

We are happy to provide more information about our education solicitor services for schools. Do send us an enquiry or give us a call.
