Testimonials


“Premier Advisory’s services were recommended to us by a multi-academy trust for whom who they had worked with previously on a similar piece of work. From our initial discussions until the present day PAG staff have been a valuable source of information, expertise and support. PAG’s initial work was to work with the school on an application to open a new SEND school in RBKC via a local authority competition. This included a concurrent application to become an academy sponsor. Following the success of our free school application, PAG has worked with us on the formation of our new multi-academy trust which will include the new school and a local partner school. PAG has project managed the entire process, helping us to overcome a number of risks and challenges along the way.”

Integrated Curriculum Financial Planning
PAG supported the Swanland Education Trust in 2018 by conducting ICFP analysis on the schools in our Trust and enabling our MDIF grant to be released. A range of measures were taken into account and this opened discussion on how to use even more resources effectively and efficiently in the SET schools. The findings from the ICFP analysis helped SET in collaborative decision making, the development of the Trust and forward planning. At all stages of the process, the PAG team were supportive and allowed the pace of work to be bespoke to our situation. This resulted in a stress free process from start to finish.”
