Alan Patient & Co have assisted us through a period of change. They have helped update our financial controls, advised on and implemented new accounting software and aided us in maintaining budgetary controls to help us grow from 900 going up to 1,500 pupils. I used to find monthly budgetary meetings daunting, feeling that I was being talked to in another language. Thanks to Alan Patient & Co they explained everything to me in plain English allowing me to focus on and understand the key issues. Due to their professionalism and expertise I now look forward to monthly meetings to see how our funding is being best spent to improve the school for our staff and our pupils learning.
