EPI was founded in 2015 with a focus on providing robust business management services. Since then, we have grown our business and become a supplier to the Department of Education for School Resource Management and an approved supplier to the ESFA for financial support for schools.
Our team of advisors have a wealth of experience drawn from working within the Primary, Academies and Multi-Academy Trust’s, LA and Maintained sectors. In addition to this, our team have worked internationally broadening our holistic approach to school improvement and therefore bring a range of skills to help deliver support in schools.
