We recently acted for our client, whose son was permanently excluded from a prestigious independent school. Our client’s son was in his last year at school, preparing to sit his final GCSE examinations. Our client sought advice and assistance from us, as a permanent exclusion would remain on her son’s record and hinder applications for a position at sixth form for him to sit his A Levels. We wrote to the Headteacher and persuaded him withdraw his decision to permanently exclude our client’s son allowing our client to withdraw him instead, rendering his record clear of the permanent exclusion. As a result of our letter we were also able to persuade the Headteacher to waive the normal requirement for parents to give a term’s notice ahead of withdrawing from the school as well as agreeing to provide a good reference. As a result our client has been able to focus on supporting her son in his studies towards his GCSE’s and A Level position applications and is looking forward to a fresh start in September 2016.

“ Match Solicitors showed genuine concern for my daughter’s case and worked tirelessly to achieve a satisfactory outcome. The service and quality of work was excellent. ”
“ Nicole is excellent. She was always very attentive, meticulous and extremely organised. ”
“ The service was first class and I was encouraged by the Solicitors sound knowledge of education law. Having a child with special needs is a challenge to any parent and the whole process of going to an educational tribunal can be quite daunting. Match Solicitors was able to get the job done professionally and to the highest standard and yet still retaining a very caring and human side which was very reassuring. ”
