Wynyard Church of England Primary School opened in September 2015 as part of a new development at Wynyard. As a school serving a brand-new housing estate, the Trust were presented with significant challenges. Schools’ Buying Club was appointed to provide project management support for the pre-opening phase including advice on governance, education, finance and stakeholder consultation.
Schools’ Buying Club helped Bramley Grange, a Primary School of 320 pupils, go out to tender for their catering services. The winning contract promised a £5.6k return over the 3 year period.
“Thank you for your guidance through such a complex process. We really appreciate the support and savings.”
IQRA Academy is in the heart of Manningham, and on the outskirts of Bradford city centre. The school’s commitment and desire to provide first class education is second to none.

Schools’ Buying Club went out to the market on behalf of IQRA Academy and upon award of the contract to Facilities Management (Bradford Council). The academy benefited from a saving of £19k and a non-depreciating capital investment of £41K, delivering a total saving of £60K.
