Mrs Allison Millis

Business Consultant

Welcome to M2M School Business Management

M2M School Business Management takes pride in offering and delivering a number of bespoke high quality, professional and affordable Business Management Consultancy Services that are effective, add value and facilitate an improvement in school performance.

Having worked in the education sector for over 20 years and as an experienced qualified School Business Manager for the past 8 years, I have now set up M2M School Business Management to provide an independent Consultancy Service that is both innovative and unique. 

M2M School Business Management provides Educational Leaders across London and the South East the opportunity to access a range of services that are tailored specifically to meet their individual organisation’s needs, objectives and budget.

There are many ways in which qualified School Business Manager can help academies and schools make the best use of their resources and facilities, such as:

  • Saving 10% of the school budget through more efficient financial management
  • Freeing up a third of the Headteachers/SLT members time
  • Increasing income – From out of hours’ lettings.
  • Accessing funding streams/writing successful bids/grant applications.
  • Evaluating existing provision to help improve performance and efficiency, meaning more money is spent in the right place – improving education for children by working ‘Smarter not Harder’.

The cost of employing a full-time Business Manager with the requisite set of skills, qualifications and experience is beyond the reach of many educational establishments particularly primary schools.  With my school based background I understand both the context and the ever- changing constraints schools/academies operate within.

My passion is therefore to deliver effective, affordable and flexible School Business Management solutions to allow Headteachers and Senior Leaders to focus upon strategy, leadership and delivering the very best education to their learners.

  • Grant/Bid Writing Service, includes Academies Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) Bids and general advice about funding currently available to Academies and Schools;
