Financial management fit for the future
As schools in England continue to join or merge into larger academy trusts, we take a look at how a centralised, cloud-based approach to financial management is helping drive efficiency and savings in MATs.
We selected Civica because they showed a great understanding of what we wanted to achieve. We like their partnership model and Civica's team of teachers act as an extension of my school team...they are invaluable.
