Audit services for academy schools and MTAs

“Price Bailey are a reliable & informative firm of accountants who keep me informed of all rules & regulations that I need in order to do my job effectively.”

Helena Romanes School

Whether your school is a late converter; is under pressure to become, grow or join a multi-academy trust or is just looking for a change in advisor, our close-knit team, most of whom have experience working as academy trustees themselves, can help and guide you through the extensive regulations and confusing jargon.



Value-added services



Our overriding focus is on providing academies and their trustees with the answers before anyone thinks to ask the question. Support offered within our fixed fee service has grown based upon the requirements of our clients and includes:


Free presentations to trustees


Whether upon conversion, or now more likely to newer new trustees, we are always happy to present to your governing board on topics such as governor and trustee responsibilities, good governance principles and risk mitigation. We are currently assisting many governing boards on understanding the implications of forming, joining or growing a multi-academy trust.


Pre-audit workshops 


Prior to the commencement of each years’ audit process, these free sessions help ensure your finance staff are fully aware of the issues concerning end-of-year reporting and accounting.


Unlimited free helpdesk


By phone or by email, if we either know or should know the answer to your query (and our experience is such that this is no longer confined to just financial and reporting matters) then that advice is free – as much as you need – as often as you like.
