At School Space, we create thriving schools at the centre of thriving communities. Read about how exactly we're doing that in our case studies below.
In recent years, budget pressures and funding shortfalls have been huge challenges facing schools in the UK. This problem does not affect just teachers and students. It leaves a mark on each individual local community.
Whether it’s stationery or staffing, schools have been making difficult decisions, day-in day-out about where to cut and restrict resources to balance their budgets. When schools struggle to make ends meet, they must get creative about fundraising for their school. The result? They are forced to shift their focus from doing what they do best - educating.
One way that schools are bridging this funding gap is by hiring out their school facilities to local community groups. Sports teams, yoga groups, dance classes and church choirs are keen to rent space that puts them at the heart of their communities.
This is where School Space comes in.
A partnership with School Space significantly increases your School’s lettings capacity and income. Our partner schools have seen, on average, a 128% increase in their facility usage within 6 months of working with School Space.
