Peripatetic school business manager


It is appreciated that not all schools have the time or the money to develop, train and appoint their own School Business Manager (SBM), so we in Financial Services have proactively developed an innovative peripatetic School Business Manager service.

This service is only available to schools subscribing to the full Finance & Business Management Consultancy Service.

What the service includes

The service will be delivered by your dedicated finance professional who has successfully achieved, or is working towards, the Certificate in School Business Management.

The SBM may assist in the facilitation of new projects and reviews of existing practices covering any or all of the following strategic areas:

  • Leadership and Management
  • Financial Management
  • Human Resources Management (in conjunction with Personnel Services)
  • Risk Management
  • Estate/Facilities Management
  • ICT and or Office Systems Management

Benefits to your school

The role of the SBM is designed  specifically to support Headteachers with the leadership, strategic management and administrative complexities that they face on a regular basis.

There may also be additional benefits to other schools where  projects, developments and SBM experience may contribute to wider service and or school improvements.


The School Business Manager service is based on the SBM working an extra 20 days on your school. 

This is an initial estimate and may vary according to individual school's requirements.
