The UK’s leading education-specific provider of professional services and solutions to MATs, academies and schools.

 

Strictly Education 4S is part of the Strictly Education group, an education-specific support services provider, delivering a comprehensive range of support to over 2,000 schools, academies and MATs in over 120 local authorities.

By your side since 2004, Strictly Education 4S - formerly known as Babcock 4S - draws on a rich experience in education and training. By joining forces, we are united by a common purpose; supporting governors and school leaders to achieve the best outcomes for children and young people.

Working alongside schools, academies and MATs, our focus is to provide a strategic solution with hands-on operational support to reduce the administration burden and enable schools to focus on improving pupil outcomes. We build enduring partnerships founded on trust and are committed to service excellence.

Harnessing the combined capabilities and resources of the two organisations provides school leaders with an integrated service solution across HR, payroll & finance, premises management, data management & technology, governance and organisational development.
