“As a Headteacher I often can see the possibility but never the time. With Zenith, the possibilities are real”
Cristina Portoles, Head, Laindon Park Primary School & Nursery
Zenith has access to specialist teams that are skilled at solving problems and creating opportunities. This not only frees up the time of school staff, but also helps schools achieve better results for each child. Collective spending power helps budgets go further. Schools that can focus on exceptional teaching, learning and pastoral support attract more pupils. Greater opportunities for teachers across Trust schools attract the best talent to the school team.
Handing over administrative worries in this way is a virtuous circle that creates better outcomes for individual pupils – and results in happier, more motivated teaching staff.
- HR. A dedicated team is on hand to help all Trust schools recruit teachers, NQTs, specialists and governors. This allows headteachers to reach a wider pool of talent for each role.
- Communication. Communication with parents and the wider community has never been more important. Fluid, regular communication helps to improve school reputation, enhance student and pupil intake and facilitate talent. Our Trust team supports and advises on parental/carer communications as well as on whole-school imagery and press relations. Communication is always evolving and a school’s particular strengths and successes are continually shared with a wide audience via internal communications, social media output and other exciting means.
- Finance. Collective budgeting brings greater bargaining power and bigger savings. Our experts can also help apply the principles of curriculum-led financial planning, bringing in consultants to adapt and structure the school curriculum so that it gets results and releases more money to do extra work.
- IT. Shared ICT purchasing and support across all schools means better equipment, fewer problems, more frequent upgrades and the opportunity for all pupils to participate fully in a rich, digital-age curriculum.

“Finances have improved – we have saved £200k for new building work. We’ve been able to invest in expanding the school. Our intake has increased which had brought in revenue. Data has improved as teachers are focused on pupils.”
