Catholic schools and Churchmarketplace

Browne Jacobson’s education team are proud to be an approved supplier of legal services to Catholic Schools via Churchmarketplace. 

Churchmarketplace was developed by the Catholic Church in response to a need expressed nationally by Dioceses and their Bishops to help members of the Catholic community to work together to reduce costs. Being a Churchmarketplace approved supplier means that our services have been thoroughly examined and approved for being able to offer Catholic Schools consistently competitive pricing, service and quality. For more information about Churchmarketplace, please click here.

We are a market leading education law team with offices in London, Birmingham, Exeter, Nottingham and Manchester. Consistently ranked in Band One nationally for Education by both Chambers UK and Legal 500, we have a genuine long standing pedigree as trusted advisors to the education sector. We are an approved law firm partner of the National Governors’ Association, the Association of School and College Leaders and the Confederation of School Trusts. We also enjoy strong working relationships with the National Association of Head Teachers.

We are particularly well-placed to advise and support Catholic Schools, acting for six Catholic Dioceses and having been instructed by hundreds of Catholic schools on various matters over many years. We have set up more than 50 Catholic multi academy trusts and have acted for over 500 Catholic schools on the academy conversion process. We can provide substantive legal advice and support for Catholic Schools on the full range of issues including admissions and exclusions, special educational needs and disability, child protection and safeguarding, charity law, employment law issues, property development, construction and capital projects, data protection and information sharing, intellectual property, commercial contracts, procurement and health and safety.

Some of our recent case studies can be found here.

We also offer a dedicated ‘Quickcall’ helpline service for Catholic Schools which offers schools quick access to ad hoc legal advice on the whole range of issues which may affect the day to day running of a catholic education establishment.

When using Browne Jacobson, Catholic Schools can be sure of the highest standards of integrity and the provision of responsive, cost-effective and pragmatic legal support that is supportive of the values of Catholic Education.
