In this most sensitive and complex aspect of business the MTM Business and Investment Team have a wealth of knowledge and experience both in the independent school sector and the commercial world. Confidentiality and tact are vital in order to avoid unnecessary parent flight.

Our legal and financial understanding will minimise the potentially high legal and financial costs associated with sales and acquisitions. We’ve also worked with some of the world’s most challenging markets, enabling us to offer you the international expertise of varying business customs and practice.

Our team will guide and support you through every step of the sale or acquisition process. For those potential clients seeking to acquire a school or college MTM also offer a Demand & Supply Analysis and can call upon a range of valuable contacts in the sector.
