What we do

J & G Marshall Ltd is a company created to help schools not just understand the academy conversion process, but to navigate successfully and effectively through it and thrive post conversion.

Our support grows with you. We have the credentials and experience to help MATs grow and flourish. We can highlight your strengths and signpost areas to develop before they become critical concerns. This understanding is a vital part of a healthy academy trust.

Our aim is to be a long-term partner, allowing educationalists to focus on outcomes, and our team of experts to ensure the framework is in place for your school and MAT to flourish.

That is why we have developed a suite of services to support you from the moment the idea for a Trust is conceived, through to growth and due diligence.

Our services include:


I have had the pleasure to work with Jeff and his colleagues for the last two years, on our academy journey. The professional service, advice, knowledge and support has been first class, simply outstanding! Jeff was recommended by a colleague and from the first point of contact he has been reliable, warm, reassuring and very approachable-always at the end of an email, a phone call or a text (even late in the evening or at weekends). The time and commitment that Jeff has given over these two years has been phenomenal, definitely going ‘above and beyond’. He has attended numerous meetings, provided all kinds of documentation and personally provided advice, guidance and council. He has linked us in with other Trusts and introduced us to numerous people who can support us in our new Trust moving forwards. I cannot recommend Jeff’s company enough and I will certainly be looking to work with him more in the very near future -with his CEO course, and work around governance and trust growth. A huge thank you to Jeff and his team-you have been AMAZING!
