Earlier this month our sister company, Building Schools for Nothing (BSfN), exhibited at the Schools & Academies Show in Excel in London.

It was a great opportunity to meet with Schools Business Managers from across the country. There was a lot of interest in how our consultancy services are providing unique funding alternatives to building new schools and educational projects, so we had a busy but very productive couple of days.

During the show we held a prize draw for £100 contribution to school PTA funds and we were delighted for Pitcheroak School in Redditch who were the worthy winners.

BSfN was created to unlock the assets that schools own to release funds for much needed new school buildings. This means that schools can enjoy the benefits of their new buildings, at no net cost and at the show we showcased our most recent success story, Three Rivers Academy, and how we planned and delivered a complex strategy to provide £40m of replacement school buildings without direct funding from local or central government.

Visitors learnt how we helped turn a failing school with run down and poorly located buildings, where pupil numbers and results were declining, into a new state of the art school which has achieved its aim to transform and rebrand itself.
