Services for Schools

Whether you are state-maintained, an academy, a free or independent school, the challenges remain the same – delivering outstanding education against a backdrop of changing legislature and policy, compliance and financial pressures.

Place Group has helped schools ranging across the breadth and depth of the education spectrum, providing strategic advice and managing programmes of change including becoming a Trust, joining a Trust and forming partnerships and federations. Our advisers have a long track record in readying schools for Ofsted inspection and advising on programmes of sustained improvement, and we ensure that we are 100% up to speed on education legislation and policy change to advise school leaders and governors on their statutory responsibilities.

With greater independence comes greater responsibility for schools when it comes to forecasting and managing budgets, procuring products and services and managing and maintaining assets and buildings. Our experts can advice you on how to run a balanced budget, how to secure best value from the market and how to manage capital programmes whether its design and space / furniture planning and construction, or ICT and infrastructure for teaching and learning and administration.
