About Us

Founded in 2003, Place Group established itself as a leading educational consultancy, producing an exemplar scheme for Building Schools for the Future. Our work in BSF earned praise and accolades and led to our appointment onto DfE frameworks for the provision of consultancy services that are held to this day.

Following our work in BSF we became a major player in the Academies Programme where we advised on and project managed some of the most high profile school openings of the time. We were instrumental in the first wave of Manchester Academies and delivered schools on the ground and strategic advice to the local authority.

As a result of our work in the Academies Programme we were able to ‘re-tool’ quickly to meet the needs of clients following the Academies Act 2010 which ushered in a new wave of schools through converter academies and Free Schools.

Today we retain a market leading position in project management and educational advisory services. We have also carried on our commitment to improving life chances for children and young people through our involvement in several multi-academy trusts and our award winning Schools’ Buying Club.

We remain as committed to education as the day we started and our open, honest and commercial approach to our work means that much of our business comes from returning clients.

New challenges are always welcomed so if you you think our approach could benefit your school or Trust, get in touch.
