Alan Patient & Co

Alan Patient & Co specialise in providing Financial Management for schools. Despite being Chartered Accountants, we don’t just deliver numbers. Instead using our background in auditing we convert the language used by auditors into clear strategic and practical actions, offering strategic support and advice based on a school’s numbers. Our intent is to add financial clarity so that Head Teachers have more time to focus on teaching with less need to think about finance.

Based in South Woodford we support Schools and Academies across London and the Home Counties with their financial systems and procedures. Essentially, we can help make your funding go further.

Specific services include:

· pre conversion to an academy

· post conversion

· changes in your corporate structure

· updating Financial Management procedures

Our expert team have a thorough understanding of the challenges in your changing environment with the experience to support School leaders, Chief Financial Officers and Business Managers to give you peace of mind.

Our support, guidance and advice will help you meet the requirements of the ESFA and the Academies Financial Handbook.

We offer a free Financial Health check for Schools and Academies, if you arrange your appointment before the autumn term. Alternately, call us for ideas on improving the structure and management of your school’s finances; there’s no obligation, we’d love to help.
