3/11/20 – Valuing educational properties during Covid

The majority of trading concerns have faced upheaval and turmoil during 2020 and the education sector has not been immune to the disruption caused by Covid-19.  From small proprietary owned preparatory schools to substantial registered charitable and commercially operated school groups across the UK, all have had to quickly adapt and learn how to continue to provide virtual high educational standards to their pupils plus strike a balance with welfare issues and expectations of parents.

There are many reasons, why independent schools require a professional valuation of the land, buildings and operational business; from internal management, strategic advice, accounting standards, compliance with the Charity Commission, planned developments/remodelling and secured lending.

Aitchison Raffety have been providing property services to schools for over 17 years and continue to be the first choice for specialised property advice.

We understand the business of educational property and are involved with schools on a regular basis providing valuation advice.  We provide invaluable property advice to Lenders, Senior Management Teams/Governors, Bursars and Business Managers.
