I have worked with campion consultancy since 2017. The support and guidance they have provided has been invaluable, they are always on the end of an email or call to support and answer any questions.

As the SBL of an 18 form entry secondary phase and 3 form entry primary based across four sites. Campion quickly grasped a good understanding of my unique situation coupled with knowledge of the local authority within which we are based, this makes working with Campion easy.

Campion have always been flexible and fully understand my need for that flexibility due to the demands of my role, they are always happy to help where needed. It gives me peace of mind knowing that someone else knows my budget and my school as well as I do, this means I can wholeheartedly trust any advice given to me is tailored specifically to the needs of my school.
