Supporting inspirational, safe and sustainable learning spaces

Our property solutions will help you to lay the foundations for an inspiring, stimulating and sustainable learning space.

Combining our property expertise from across Capita and our specialist education business, Entrust, we provide children and young people with facilities that inspire learning, are safe and provide a sense of community and belonging.

We also recognise that our work can have a large impact on the environment and we are continually challenging ourselves to design and support sustainable building against challenging budgets.

I just wanted to say how thrilled we are with our new building. Our children and their families, staff and governors are all so impressed – the expression ‘WOW!’ has been heard many times this last week.
