Audit and assurance

We decided to appoint Ensors as our auditors when we converted to Academy status in February 2012 as they seemed most in tune with our way of working. Since then we have been extremely happy with our decision. They provide excellent, common sense and easy to follow advice and are very responsive. Debbie Rattle - St Alban’s Catholic High School

Academies in the UK operate in a highly regulated environment and you need to ensure that you have suitable procedures in place to meet the requirements of the Accounts Direction and your Funding Agreement.

When it comes to auditing, we understand the particular challenges and issues that you face.
Your audit team will be partner led and contain at least one qualified accountant. They will have the right level of experience and expertise required to deliver the high levels of service expected and ensure time critical deadlines are met.

We pride ourselves on building close working relationships with our clients and our exceptional staff retention rate means we can offer a sense of continuity year on year.

Whilst statutory requirements will inevitably shape our final audit report, we continuously strive to deliver the very best service and provide flexibility.

For example, every audit client will receive a Final Management Report, providing detailed commentary on their accounts, analysis of the financial controls inherent in the academy and recommendations for the future.  In addition, we would be happy to help with Teachers Pension audits, FRS 17 disclosures, Annual Accounts Returns and even provide support to your Responsible Officer with regard to the tests required.
