The SchoolsCompany ‘PAD’

OUR HISTORY

SchoolsCompany is a company that has been dedicated to improving opportunities for children since its conception.

The company was created to build on our successful careers in teaching, managing and leading in challenging urban mainstream and alternative secondary schools, mainly in London and in schools across the UK. After being highly sought after to deliver educational consultancy assignments nationwide, the need to share educational solutions to a wider school group became evident. This initial success led to the creation of a dynamic and visionary educational consultancy.

Our activities are supported by a research service. All our staff, specialists, consultants and associates, are very experienced in and dedicated to school improvement with passion and creativity to improve the life chances of all children attending school.

We help a wide range of schools and the education public sector to improve the quality of their services. Our assignments affect and influence how schools are managed and delivered every day to ensure high standards in education and lifelong opportunities for learning and self-improvement.

In 2012 the Department for Education approved SchoolsCompany as an Academy Sponsor. Our Academies and Free Schools operate under The SchoolsCompany Trust. Our first three Academies opened in Devon on March 1st 2015.
