We provide an independent opinion on our client’s financial and non-financial statements, as well as giving important insights and added value as auditors.

We have been providing professional and effective audit and assurance services to the education sector for over 50 years, working with a large, varied group of non-government independent schools.

We pride ourselves on being highly responsive to our clients’ needs, requests and time frames. Our audit team is director-led, ensuring strong leadership and close client relationships.

Providing an agile and highly personalised service, we consider this responsiveness and director involvement critical to our partnerships.

Our high standard of professional practice and technical training guarantees expert knowledge of the issues affecting the education sector, delivering maximum value to our clients. Recognising each audit engagement is unique, we take the time to understand your culture and criteria to ensure we deliver maximum value at every stage.
