drb Schools and Academies Services Limited is only too aware of the financial pressures now being faced by all schools. Increased emphasis is being placed on Academies, however, drb supports numerous LA schools as they face those same challenges.

drb’s experienced consultants and support team are able to provide you with strategic support and advice and look at ways of helping schools to identify and realise efficiencies without the need to academise.

The services we provide include:-

  • 3 year strategic financial projections and modelling.
  • Production of detailed staffing projections
  • Production of Financial Reports to your Governing Body
  • Advice and guidance on the way forward for schools seeking to collaborate
  • Supporting for system changeovers (e.g. moving to SIMS) and full cheque-book preparation to ensure you are ready for the changes required in 2020
  • Bespoke service provision tailored to meet the school’s needs
  • Preparation for internal audit to ensure your compliance
  • Training for schools on key topics

For the Autumn Term 2017, drb are offering an independent Free Half Day financial health check / review of your system and finances. If you would like to find out more about any of the above or take advantage of our health check, please contact Doug Skinner on 07843 282 535 or email him at doug.skinner@drbsas.co.uk for further details.
