What our schools say

  • My primary reason for choosing the Clerking Service is the fact that you can get advice as and when needed on all aspects of governance. The information provided is accurate and timely and I can't recommend the service highly enough.
  • We are more than happy with the quality of the service that we receive and our allocated Clerk in particular is brilliant!
  • No issues with the service. Minutes are always a true reflection of meetings and everything is done to scale and all timescales met.
  • We are always very grateful for the excellent support and advice provided by our regular clerk. We have used the service for the 10 years I have been headteacher and will continue to do so. Thank you to all concerned.
