Prime Facility Services grows schools portfolio

Prime Facility Services, a leading provider of commercial cleaning services in the education sector, has secured a significant cleaning contract with Unity Multi Academy Trust.

The Trust, which specialises in Special Educational Needs (SEN) provision, operates three schools in Warwickshire, specifically in Coleshill, Rugby, and Stratford-on-Avon.

The contract, which commences this month, encompasses the first two schools with the third set to be included later. The agreement is expected to generate approximately £470,000 over three years, with the potential for extension another two years.

The win comes after Prime Facility Services was entrusted with a deep clean of the Trust’s Rugby school just before an Ofsted inspection in December 2022. Following the successful operation, Prime Facility Services was invited to tender for regular cleaning services and, in October 2023, was selected as the Trust’s preferred contractor.

David Edwards, CEO of Prime Facility Services, said: “We have worked with Unity for just under a year now and we are delighted to add their schools to our growing portfolio of education customers. We are also excited to welcome the 15 staff at both schools who will be transferring to us under TUPE in the New Year.”

Paul Bond, Site & Facilities Manager at Unity Multi Academy Trust, said of the partnership: “We decided as a Trust to outsource the cleaning of our schools about 12 months ago and having used Prime for our deep clean I found them responsive, easy to deal with and delivered a great service. Therefore, we invited them and other local companies to bid for our regular cleaning. Prime’s submission stood out with great focus on training, supervision, health & safety, value for money and most of all – care for the staff who do the work. I am looking forward to having Prime on board as our partner for cleaning services.”
