State Schools & Academies

Heritage speaks volumes

State education is a sector where we feel at home. It’s the sector we started in.

We have worked with thousands of schools. In 2017/18 we supported more UK schools than any other consultancy, managing more than 60% of all school-related OJEU tenders for both catering and cleaning services.

For total compliance we will create, consolidate and safely store our clients’ Regulation 84 Pack on a secure portal that may be accessed for audit purposes at any time.

Our provenance is deep, and our reputation second to none.  Our extensive library of case histories provides detailed information about specific projects we have helped deliver.  We are proud of our track record.

“As they say, the proof of the pudding.”
