Suppliers – We need you!
As well as being passionate about saving schools money and helping them streamline their back offices, we are equally as passionate about having a fantastic, high quality network of suppliers that want to bid for our schools’ business.
The success of our procurements is down to the calibre of our suppliers and we only work with the best. We can provide you with a channel to an increasingly fragmented marketplace, one where you know if a tender has been issued, it’s real and the requirement that you’re bidding for is 100% accurate. Every year, schools across the country spend in excess of £9 billion on the procurement of goods and services – and we help thousands of these schools to ensure their buying activity is as efficient, compliant and transparent as possible.

“We have enjoyed working with Schools’ Buying Club on a number of catering contracts. Their support during such aspects as implementation aids both our and the school’s experience of the tender process. ”
“Schools’ Buying Club assisted us with a smooth transition into Marner Primary School and aided in establishing us at Burlington Infant & Nursery School, part of the Malden & Coombes partnership. We are grateful for SBC’s expertise in these areas and supporting us with the schools’ cleaning contracts.”
“Schools’ Buying Club is a very good channel for us and we have secured several new clients through them. I look forward to working with SBC further in the future.”
“Schools’ Buying Club has aided a smaller business such as ourselves to attain design and marketing contracts of a size which we may not otherwise have achieved. This has allowed us to expand our portfolio in this competitive sector.”
