The Premises Team is happy to provide support and advice to schools on a range of development, improvement and capital refurbishment matters.
The team benefits from in-house building surveying and project management expertise, working alongside consultants and other experts. We liaise with the Department for Education (via the Education Funding Agency) to secure grants and funding, providing administrative and financial support. We also meet with Local Authorities and other agencies on schools’ behalf. Our work primarily covers VA Schools and the ODST Multi-Academy trust. VC Schools should manage their premises in conjunction with their Local Authority and standalone academies with DfE directly.
