Case study: Improving operational performance for a school group

Our client has a group of 6th form colleges that were operating at different levels. The client wanted to understand how it could improve its performance.

The context

Our client has a group of 6th form colleges that were operating at different levels. The client wanted to understand how it could improve its performance.

Our role

We built a framework to analyse the drivers of performance across the group and identified and got buy-in from the school heads to a number of important levers to pull to improve performance.

The outcome

The implementation of certain recommendations led to significant profit enhancement for the group even though some initiatives had to be deferred for operational reasons.

What the client said:

ID: 019

“We needed Cairneagle to come in and review our in-college operating model and commercial efficiency. Through a good mixture of analytics, staff interviews and clear thinking, the Cairneagle team were able to identify several improvements to our business. Delivering these recommendations will have a substantial impact on our bottom line.”
