Schools & Academies

One West has special expertise in working with schools and academies. We currently partner with well over 300 educational providers primarily in the South West of England.

Our staff have high levels of school relevant skills, qualifications and knowledge which means we can consistently provide a first rate service.

Our experience is broad. We understand educational financial systems, governance and internal controls

This means we are able to give our customers confidence that risks and needs have been identified and can be tackled via sound action planning.

We know how important value for money is. We focus on efficient delivery of our services to ensure our customers feel that we give this as we work together time and time again.

We understand the regulations schools work with. Our services will ensure your academy or school complies with the relevant requirements required by the Academies Financial Handbook and Schools Financial Value Standards (SFVS) plus others as required.
