About Bishop Fleming

The lead provider of audit services to academies in the UK with over 500 academy school clients.

Specialist academy accountants

Bishop Fleming's Academy Group advises over 500 academies, including 80 multi-academy trusts, throughout the UK.

Through our offices in Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth, Torquay, Truro and Worcester our academy team has grown to become one of the largest in the region with 8 Partners and a team of over 90 other significantly experienced academy specialists. Every member of the academy team spends 25% - 50% of their time working with academy clients but also work with other charity and education clients and business organisations. This ensures that they provide advice that is technically excellent and commercially astute.

The Group was established to ensure that all these important clients are serviced effectively and that resources allocated to the Group are co-ordinated efficiently. Our concentrated strength and the investment in this Group by the partners, reflects our commitment to this sector where there are regularly changing regulations which demand specialist knowledge and a pro-active approach.

The partners in charge of the Academy Group are at the forefront of the sector. They regularly convey their academy sector expertise through presenting at seminars for the ICAEW, other training organisations and with the Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). They are well networked and each partner advises at least 20 academies.

We are passionate about the academy sector. It is ever changing and no two issues are the same, but we can draw on our extensive experience. We are constantly advising our clients through sector changes and how these impact on them.

If you’re an academy school or a school exploring conversion to academy status, we’d be delighted to speak to you about the services and advice we can offer.
