Great Ballard School
A mixed Independent school located in West Sussex, Great Ballard School educates children from the ages of 2-13 years with impressive academic results. First founded in 1924, the school benefits from 30 acres of grounds within the Sussex countryside whilst also having the benefits of being located close to Chichester.
Having previously been with a Birmingham based firm of auditors, Terry Hockley was approached by taylorcocks in June 2010 with a view to taking over the school's audit. Due to the distance involved with their current accountants, Terry was looking for a local firm who would be on hand to provide them with a more proactive and responsive service.
Whilst we were happy with our accountants in Birmingham, the distance was a huge factor for us because we were incurring considerable travel costs. When approached by taylorcocks, they had the added advantage of being much closer to the school as well as having considerable expertise in matters relevant to our industry."
