"It was due to the invaluable support of Daniel Banton and Howes Percival that we were able to achieve our Academy conversion within a ten-week period. Through a calm, efficient and judicious approach, five single schools were steered through a wealth of requirements, achieving all deadlines and subsequently converting to become a Multi-Academy Company. Daniel was reliable, dedicated to the conversion and exceptionally hardworking. We would highly recommend Howes Percival to others who are converting to Academies."
