A child only has one chance to obtain the education they deserve. Rarely does one gain a second chance. Therefore it is vital to obtain specialist legal advice.

Our experience in this field is second to none and our firm has been recognised as one of the leading Education Law Teams in the country. Watkins & Gunn is committed to putting a child’s needs first and making the legal process clear for you.

 We specialise in the following areas of education law:

  • Helping obtain appropriate special educational needs (SEN) provision
  • Ensuring that a child actually receives all the education provision that they are entitled to, through judicial review if necessary
  • Helping with admissions and exclusions cases
  • Advising on local authority policy decisions including school closures & reorganisation
  • Disputes regarding School Transport
  • Further and Higher Education Funding

In the interests of the child educational issues need to be decided quickly and it is therefore essential that one acts with speed with the expert legal assistance to ensure peace of mind. This is a specialist of area of law, requiring the knowledge and expertise of specialist legal advisors

Whether you are a parent, student, professional individual or body, our services will be tailored to your needs. You will receive first class advice and support.
