Schools that have purchased our services have said:

"Having worked in other authorities where no such service exists I am always grateful to be working in Herts where it does.”

"As a new head I have learned a great deal from my adviser, and have greatly valued her support."


Herts for Learning's Financial Services has been providing comprehensive financial mangement support to schools in Hertfordshire since 1993 following the introduction of local management in schools.

We are also now providing financial support to academies and free schools using the FMS financial software, both in schools and through the Financial Services help desk.

Through our service we provide reassurance to school leaders that accounting records are accurate and up to date for effective budget monitoring and financial planning.

Our promise is to provide 'highly professional services at reasonable prices'.

Our success is proved by the rapid and continuing growth of the services we provide in schools. We very much value our reputation with schools, and this reputation is demonstrated by some of the favourable comments we have received from our customers.
