Selling a School
Are you selling a school, nursery or other educational establishment? If you are new to the concept of selling a school, you are not alone. Whether you own an independent preparatory school, a special school, a nursery or if your school belongs to a charitable trust, National School Transfer can help.
We understand that confidentiality is vitally important and we strive to ensure that your confidentiality is maintained at all times. We have a database of fully registered buyers who have signed our confidentiality agreement and are waiting to buy a school – possibly just like yours.
If you would like to discuss the potential sale of your school, or if you just want some information please give us a call on 01980 621251.
We offer a service that is:
We are always aware of the vital need for a confidential approach when proprietors wish to sell their schools. We only disclose the name of the school to one of our fully registered buyers with the proprietor’s agreement.
Our initial aim was limited to achieving successful school transfers. It has broadened since then to providing professional advice on marketing or revenue enhancement. Our consultants specialise in this field.
We find it helpful to have a personal relationship with our clients. This allows us to discover what their real needs are; we achieve this by visiting our sellers – on site at a time convenient to them.
