As a small primary trust the conversion to academy status was a daunting prospect for us. We chose to work with Simon Webber and his team in Chichester because of... More their experience in the sector and because they were local enough to give a close and personalised level of service. Their detailed understanding of academy accounting and governance regulations allowed us to move forward with confidence that we were on a solid footing. The support they have given us during our conversion, throughout the year and beyond was superb and exactly what we needed. The professional and friendly approach from all their staff made me feel at ease during what was my first experience of an audit process. Nicky Schofield, School Business Manager, Oak Academy Trust
