Setting up school

I want to start a Saturday school. How do I go about it?

Starting a Saturday school is like starting any other business except there is the added factor that you are working with young people. As a result, you will almost certainly need some form of registration. Additionally, you will need to ensure that all staff and helpers are checked for criminal convictions. You should ask advice from the local authority where you want to operate the Saturday school. There seems to be no problem with anyone using terms such as school or even teacher.
