Our approach

Satis Education was established to support the needs of clients including schools and academies, multi academy trusts, dioceses and local authorities, in a way that is sensitive to the challenges facing education providers today. We will work in partnership as you negotiate a way through the ever changing education sector, whilst being mindful of resourcing constraints.

Each project undertaken is bespoke and flexible, tailored to enhance the capacity already existing within your organisation. Our project teams are experts in their field: they are at the forefront of education delivery as consultants or current practitioners within high-performing education establishments, including Teaching School Alliances.

At Satis Education we believe our strength is in our client relationships.  Our Directors are committed to being hands-on and our delivery model ensures that one of the Directors will always be your main point of contact.

This means all our clients receive the high quality, personalised service they deserve to allow them to further their vision and mission.
