Economies of scale

“The Alpha Academies Trust will streamline many back-office functions such as finance and payroll. For example, we have procured the services of an MIS consultant at reduced cost to cover our Academies and we intend to extend this to catering cleaning and other services. We will tender for the group rather than for individual academies and this will achieve economies of scale. A top slice of 3% will be taken from the school budget share and not from the whole budget so that pupil premium, SEN and other income generated by individual academies will not be top sliced.” (from our approved DfE submission)

Why Alpha?

To put children / students first and at the heart of all thinking
