Norse’s Grounds Division has retained its playing field maintenance contract for Transforming Education in Norfolk, (Ten Group), a federation of educational institutions in the county for a further three years.
The deal, worth £124k over its term covers Wayland Academy, Wayland Junior, Attleborough Academy and Fakenham Academy. Norse has maintained the sites since 2011.
In December, Norse South East rounded off the end of the year with a number of new contract wins across the company’s range of services.
The grounds division won contracts valued at over £10.5k, which included residential, parish council and secondary school clients, whilst its Trade Waste, Property Services and Vehicle Services operations saw new business worth around £20k added in the last month of the year.
Also in December, Norse’s Cleaning Division was awarded new business contracts with RAF Coltishall Fire and Rescue and Caister Junior School valued at £38.5k.
Whilst Enfield Norse picked up a three-year deal, worth around £90,000 to provide a range of cleaning services to the new £10 million, purpose-built Orchardside school in Enfield, which will provide facilities for the Secondary Tuition Service which currently operates across at other sites across the borough. Services to be delivered include daily cleans of staff and class rooms, toilets and communal areas, and periodic deep cleans.
Norse Operations Director, Robert Trewick, said: “This will be a flagship site for us within the borough, with up to 100 students using the facility. We are absolutely delighted to be working with such a prestigious new project and one that is to be part of a service is rated outstanding by Ofsted.”
In catering, the Heart Education Trust, a multi-academy trust based in Norfolk, has renewed its schools catering agreement for a further three years.
Under the renewed £240k per year, contract Norse will be providing upwards of 500 meals a day across the four schools.
Norse Business Development Director, Chris Richardson Smith, said: “This is a very significant retention for Norse, and we are delighted to reaffirm our long-standing relationship with the schools. The company has held the catering here for a very long time, in fact one staff member from the school has worked there for 25 years and she can only recall ever having Norse Catering at the school.”
