Under the Education Act 1998, the legal responsibility for transferring patronage rests with the current school patron in the first instance.

A school patron may write to me, as the Minister for Education, to request a voluntary transfer of patronage to another school patron under Section 8 of the Education Act 1998 in relation to a particular school and requesting that the patron register is amended accordingly.
