How Hallidays can help

We have a long history of working within the education and charity sectors. For example, we have been supporting Manchester High School for Girls for over 100 years, which is a remarkable partnership built on trust. We are actively involved with many schools, and since 2012 have helped a number of Academies and multi-academy trusts through their conversion.

Hallidays’ clients benefit from our invaluable knowledge of the sector and our extensive commercial expertise. Our clients regularly score us at over 90% because of our support and money back guarantee. Our fixed fees mean we do not charge you on a timesheet basis, so you don’t have to worry about how many times you pick up the phone to us!

Converting to an Academy

Becoming an academy is an exciting time for a school and its pupils, but independence brings increased responsibility and new challenges. We will guide you through the complexities, opportunities and potential pitfalls of your transition to an academy and support you throughout your journey towards achieving academic excellence.

You might be unaware of the complexity of the reporting requirements faced by becoming an academy. We will work with your team to provide the training and support they require and ensure everybody is comfortable with the financial requirements of the academy.

Audit and Accounts

As an academy you are both a charity and a limited company and are required to be compliant with statutory regulations. We will prepare and review your accounts in line with these regulations, DfE requirements, and handle all enquiries from HM Revenue and Customs.

Our audit service is tailored to meet your needs. Delivered by our highly experienced and well trained team, we will ensure that you receive a cost effective and robust service. Trained to undertake external and internal audit functions, our team also have the expert knowledge to complete the complex annual accounts return and EOYC pension return.  

Helping you grow

We are dedicated to ensuring we help our clients grow and achieve their goals. Our ‘One Page Plan’ can provide you with a regular monthly snapshot of your academy, making it easy for you to see where you are succeeding and what actions you need to take to improve. Learn more...

Added Value

These meetings are interspersed with phone calls to keep up to date with your challenges and to share best practise of your sector.
