We support the ongoing operational management for schools, working with principals, boards or owners to ensure sound governance and quality education.
Our process builds local capacity and confidence to ensure that teachers and managers develop the skills and expertise they need to maintain school success. In addition to providing beneficial back-office support for long-established schools, our School Operations service is ideal for supporting schools launched by our New School Projects service.
To cater for the varying nature of school management across the globe, where there are a number of scenarios that a school faces, we have several support options to suit the way you operate:
A. Fully managed service – Operating the school on behalf of the owners
Adopting the vision of the management, we can take a project brief and use our resources to steer the long-term operations of the school. This allows owners to focus their efforts on other activities, such as attracting investors, pursuing personal development or building new schools.
B. Bespoke service – Working alongside owners in the operational management of the school
Dovetailing seamlessly with school leaders, we can deploy strategic advisers and expert teams to support the day-to-day management of the school.
Support can include:
- Development plans
- Business operations
- Quality assurance
C. Back-office support – On an annual basis, we can provide comprehensive solutions for the following key operational functions:

Working in Partnership
Throughout all of the service options we provide for operational management, it is essential that we work ‘in partnership’ with school owners, governors, staff, parents and the community.
