We are delighted to announce that the Babcock 4S business has been acquired by Strictly Education.

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

Strictly Education is a successful education services provider, delivering a comprehensive range of support services to over 1,500 schools, 500 academies and 100 MATs in over 120 local authorities.

The Babcock 4S business has been acquired by Strictly Education and will now be known as Strictly Education 4S. 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. Babcock 4S is now known as Strictly Education 4S.

As partners in education to hundreds of education establishments, we will continue our commitment to improving the outcomes of children and young people, working alongside schools and academies to pursue excellence, challenge underperformance and offer support across all aspects of education.

Harnessing the combined capabilities and resources of the two organisations will provide school leaders with an integrated service solution across HR, payroll & finance, premises, IT, governance and organisational development. Our focus will be to provide a strategic solution with hands-on operational support to reduce the administration burden and enable schools to focus on improving pupil outcomes.
