Financial Opportunities for Independent Schools – Thinking Outside the Circle

Over the years Tony Sissons has created a number of financial initiatives in an effort to add support to the teaching programme. 

From Ansett Airlines becoming the official airline of a state school to running a learn to swim programme which teaches over 2000 children to swim per week, he is happy to share the ups and downs of how effectively you can run business units in your schools.

“As Independent schools we need to find ways to supplement increasing costs to run our schools. 

Tony is happy to share his successes and failures along with an in-house interactive session where he hopes you will leave with at least 3 ideas to reflect on as we manage the increasing challenges in our independent sector. Additional income outside the circle has its place.

A SMART and Easy Way to Manage an Alternative Income Stream – Afetr School Care Programmes

SMART (St Mark's Afterschool Recreation and Tuition) is an afterschool and holiday programme for 5 to 13 year olds that is operated and managed by St Mark's Church School.  Six years ago the St Mark's SMART programme ran at a loss and did not fully meet the commitments of the regulatory body for after school programmes - OSCAR.  In 2017 the St Mark's SMART programme returned a significant surplus and met all its regulatory obligations.

Bang for your buck’.
