Drawing on our extensive experience with on-site visits, surveys, and collaborations with Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs), we offer comprehensive information on new provision and demand dynamics. This includes attendance projections based on our successful track record, enabling local authorities to strategically plan and implement new programs that meet the community's evolving needs.
