This is another impressive feather in Tom’s judicial cap - he is already a judge in the Welfare Chapter of the tribunal system - Roger Inman, Head of Education at Stone King

This isn't the only news Stone King is celebrating this week. Tom Brooke, a consultant in Stone King’s education team, has also been appointed as a Schools Adjudicator. Roger Inman commented: “This is another impressive feather in Tom’s judicial cap - he is already a judge in the Welfare Chapter of the tribunal system. Tom will continue working with us as a consultant and we wish him well in his new role.”

As well as this, Lee Coley, a partner in its education team, will be part of the expert panel at a forthcoming meeting of the prestigious Westminster Education Forum which will consider the future of England’s school system including grammar and faith schools, the role of universities and the independent sector, and priorities for multi-academy trusts. Other notable speakers at the Forum will include Sir David Carter, National Schools Commissioner at the Department for Education; Geoff Barton of the ASCL and Mike Buchanan of the Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference.
