Doyle Clayton’s Education team specialises in providing employment and workplace law advice to the education sector. It has been shortlisted by The Legal 500 in its 2018 Annual Awards for its education work. 

The team was set up in 2014 by partner Simon Henthorn. The team regularly works with clients such as Christ the King Sixth Form College, Hampton School, Stanmore College and Queenswood School. It also works closely with a number of representative associations including IAPS (the Independent Association of Prep Schools), ISBA (The Independent Schools' Bursars Association) and the Sixth Form Colleges Association. The team in addition advises individuals employed by schools, colleges and universities.
 
Simon has been ranked as a national expert for his work with schools since 2012 (by Chambers Guide to the UK Legal Profession) and associate Liz Timmins achieved similar status this year in The Legal 500. The Legal 500 Annual Awards are unique in the legal industry and recognise the very best law firms, chambers, silks, in-house lawyers, business leaders and general counsel operating within the UK market. 
 
 Peter Doyle, Doyle Clayton’s Chief Executive comments:
 
“I am immensely pleased that our Education team has received the recognition it deserves and has been shortlisted for such a prestigious national award. Both Simon and Liz have worked hard in building one of the UK’s outstanding specialist education practices. The fact that they were both recommended by The Legal 500 this year - which said that the team is ‘strong, client-focused and thorough’ and provides ‘consistently excellent, pragmatic advice’ just goes to show that any organisation or individual employed or involved in the sector would be well placed to use them for any legal or related issue.”
