Whether you are a school, college, academy or local authority you can be sure we are always working for your best interests. No hidden agendas, no politics, just responsive, flexible services underpinned with an extensive knowledge of the workings and requirements of the education sector.

We offer four key benefits:

As a private organisation, we are totally impartial and work with you to give you the support that is right for your individual establishment.

When you choose a Strictly Education service you will quickly build a close relationship with the people allocated to your contract, both face to face and through our Helpdesks.

We fully understand the requirements placed on educational establishments by the Local Authority and DfE and work with you to ensure all your obligations are met on time.

We work only with the education market, and have a thorough understanding of the wide range of issues, varying needs and daily pressures facing educational institutions today. The starting point of our relationship is a no obligation discussion to explore how we may be able to save you time, money or simply make your life easier.
