Our partners


VWV is recognised nationally for its specialist experience and expertise in the sector and has over 1,200 education sector clients (including 700 independent schools, 300 maintained schools and academies, including over 30 multi-academy trusts, and over 50 FE and HE institutions). Unlike many firms, its practice spans the whole education sector – we act for early years providers, schools, academies, FE colleges, universities and alternative HE providers nationwide.

VWV’s USP is its immersion in and commitment to the education sector. This means that VWV has a complete understanding of the commercial significance of the deals that its transaction team works on and the regulatory environment which applies. 

VWV’s transaction team advises on a large number of deals which come in all shapes and sizes including: 

  • the acquisition and disposals of day nurseries; 
  •  school mergers; 
  • acquisitions and disposals of independent schools; 
  • academy conversions and free school matters; 
  • FE college mergers and acquisitions of learning businesses by FE colleges; 
  • transactions in the HE sector, including those affecting alternative providers.

The team also advises investors (both domestic and overseas) looking to invest in the education sector.
