The Invicta Law education team has extensive experience in the field of education, including academy conversions, SEN/discrimination issues and claims, employment tribunals, organisational change projects and TUPE. We are also in the unique position of having assisted the establishment of a ‘new’ grammar school annexe in Sevenoaks, Kent.

While we have an expert understanding of education law, we understand that many of your requirements may be more general. We combine our practical understanding of how schools, colleges and universities ‘work’ with a full range of services available to cover everything from general legal advice and one-off routine enquiries right through to longer-term or intensive support and advice.

As public sector law experts, we know the pressing need to demonstrate value for money and clear budgetary decisions so we offer fixed-price and insurance backed packages for ultimate efficiency and transparency.

If you would like to know more about how we can help, get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.

Client testimonials

“Sarah provides excellent advice, often off the cuff at the end of the phone when urgent matters arise. She is extremely good at explaining the intricacies of planning law in layman’s terms, which is very much appreciated. Sarah is a reliable and conscientious colleague who I do not hesitate to contact for guidance and clarity in often high-pressured situations. She is well respected amongst her peers and colleagues, and officers very much appreciate her knowledge and calming influence.”

“I am writing in praise of your support. As someone in the firing line of an ultra-aggressive legal team for the first time in my life, this was a traumatic and, at times, upsetting process. You were at my side, dispensing wise and calming counsel throughout. You have been readily available when crises occurred, have been a wonderful listener and, in the end, we reached an outcome that was highly satisfactory for our school and its pupils. I cannot speak highly enough of the way that you handled this case, and I thank you and your firm for the support you gave me. Being a chair of governors, sworn to confidentiality, can be a lonely business! You kept me sane.”

“The experience has been really top end. Rather than just offering the options, they have given some real solid advice on the best route. It's a good business 'partnering' approach.”
Kent Fire and Rescue Service
“Their employment advice has always proved to be sound. I’ve worked with lots of different lawyers in London boroughs and. I’d also say that Invicta Law is the most solution-focused.”
