How hiring out your school’s facilities could help you generate £70,000

With increasing financial pressures, more and more schools are struggling to set budgets without falling into deficit. Rather than having to trim already limited budgets, Vivify are here to help schools utilise their facilities to generate more funding for teachers, equipment and other important school improvements.

Many schools are unaware of just how valuable their facilities are financially or how to go about hiring out these spaces. This is where school letting experts, such as ourselves, can help. From our team’s experience of working with over 300 schools, we know that schools generate an average of £70,000 per year from hiring out their facilities to the community, with 1 in 7 achieving over £100,000.

Below is a breakdown of the average annual revenue that a school can generate from its facilities.
