4S Organisational Announcement

26th February 2019

We are delighted to announce that, on 22nd February, the Babcock 4S business was acquired by Strictly Education, a leading education specific provider of professional support services and solutions to schools, academies and multi-academy trusts.

By joining forces with Strictly Education, we are united by a common purpose; supporting governors and school leaders to achieve the best outcomes for children and young people.

“Harnessing the combined capabilities and resources of the two organisations will further strengthen Strictly Education’s offer, providing school leaders with an integrated service solution across HR, payroll & finance, premises, IT, governance and organisational development,” said Amanda Fisher, CEO at Strictly Education. “Adding the expertise of Babcock 4S, delivers additional capabilities which combine a strategic solution with hands-on operational support to reduce the administration burden and enable schools to focus on improving pupil outcomes.”

Babcock 4S will be rebranded to Strictly Education 4S with immediate effect.
