Finance and Management Servies to Schools and Academies

About Amethyst


Amethyst Advisory offers an expert consultancy service to schools and academies in the Midlands.


We understand that your number one priority is to offer your pupils the best education possible and to help them reach their full potential. We support you by taking the stress out of business management, leaving you time to focus on teaching and learning.

We live and breathe education. Between us we have more than 75 years’ experience working with schools and academies, so we understand not only the big picture of how education works, but also the fi ne print necessary to operate day to day.


As a professional advisory service, we can help you manage your finances, personnel and premises and will work with you and your governors on other business management functions that take your attention away from what’s important.
