What is Education Funding?

With the ongoing pressures on budgets within the UK’s education sector and a reduction in funding grants, schools & academies like yours are looking at more innovative and cost-effective solutions to fund their equipment requirements.

This is where compliant leasing comes in, allowing your school or academy to fund a wide range of equipment from mobile classrooms, LED lighting,  IT equipment through to outdoor/playground equipment.

Whatever your requirements, we can provide you with a compliant leasing method.  Whilst there are many benefits to leasing for schools, let's first look at some recent case studies. 

 CASE STUDY  

Primary School

  • Location: Co. Antrim

By installing state-of-the-art, energy-efficient lighting, the school achieved a remarkable improvement in light quality, cut lighting costs significantly, and is set to reduce carbon emissions by 336 tonnes over five years. This remarkable initiative, reducing electricity use for lighting, translates to over £24,000 of annual energy savings.
