What Our Customers Say

Head of Primary Academy, Wolverhampton

I have found the data support provided by S4S invaluable as a new Headteacher. The Data and systems manager who supports my school has been fantastic, no job is too much trouble and I have come to rely on her knowledge and expertise in this area. She is always happy to help and her response to queries during the COVID pandemic has really supported the school in challenging times.

School business manager, wolverhampton primary school

S4S are a great support in managing aspects of the schools data and finance.  Staff are helpful and supportive and provide advice and guidance throughout the academic year on a variety of subjects including Census, statutory submissions and budget management.  The service is invaluable in saving time and resources particularly during busier periods of the school year. 

Principal, wolverhampton primary academy

Services 4 Schools have provided a high quality data management service to my primary school for a number of years now. I have found them to be extremely efficient, flexible and creative in their approach and the support they have provided has been invaluable to my school, as well as colleagues within our MAC. I would highly recommend them and rate the service level agreement I have with Services 4 Schools amongst the most valuable we have.
