The department has worked closely with the Wakefield City Academies Trust board to ensure all 21 schools transferred smoothly to the new trusts, to minimise disruption for pupils. This included securing additional specialist capacity from Deloitte LLP to undertake a financial review of all 21 schools, provide assurance on the Trust’s financial position, and advise on options to support the closure of the Trust.

The contract between the Education and Skills Funding Agency and Deloitte LLP, which includes the full scope of the services, is published on Contracts Finder, which is available at: https://www.contractsfinder.service.gov.uk/Notice/d85bc16e-739c-4191-80ba-60fbee8d56ae?p=@FQxUlRRPT0=NjJNT08=U.
