From education to employment

Strictly Education acquires school support specialist 3BM Education

Amanda Fisher, CEO at Strictly Education

Leading education support services provider, Strictly Education, has acquired 3BM Education, the Education arm of 3BM. The move enhances Strictly Education’s position as a single source strategic solutions partner for schools, academies and multi-academy trusts (MATs).

United by a common purpose to be the trusted partner in education support services, 3BM Education brings enhanced capability, expertise and geographical reach to Strictly Education’s offer, helping governors and school leaders achieve the best outcomes for children and young people.

The acquisition of 3BM Education follows that of Babcock 4S (now Strictly Education 4S) who joined the Strictly Education family in February 2019.

“Welcoming another school support services provider borne out of an innovative joint venture created by three London Boroughs into the organisation is a great strategic fit” said Amanda Fisher, CEO at Strictly Education.

“We share the same culture and values and are committed to delivering excellence with a strong partnership ethos, which is hugely important to us.”

This takes Strictly Education one-step closer to achieving its strategic growth ambition of becoming the UK’s leading service provider to the education sector.

Strictly Education’s vision is built on supporting the growth of schools, academies, MATs and large school clusters and their requirement for a joined up, robust ‘back office’ service solution that enables teachers to remain fully focused on improving standards in the classroom.

3BM Education adds to Strictly Education’s existing HR, payroll, finance, premises, school leadership and efficiency services (which includes SIMS and Governance support), with capabilities that include raising pupils’ computing standards and keeping children safe online.

“Our experienced team with a strong presence in London is delighted to be joining the Strictly Education group” said Andy Rennison, Managing Director at 3BM.

“As a specialist services provider we bring many years of education expertise, delivering strategic services that support schools to improve education and learning.”
