OVERVIEW

Yarm School is a co-educational independent school in the Georgian market town of Yarm, England, on the River Tees. The school educates over 1200 pupils and is a member of the Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference.

As one of the UK’s leading private educational institutions, Yarm School prioritise the education and development of their students above all else. After engaging with GAS’s team, the school recognised in GAS a partner with the expertise, proven track record and unrivalled buying power that would allow them to focus more time and resources on student welfare.

By utilising their expertise and extensive knowledge of the Gas & Electricity sector, GAS were able to negotiate with a supplier capable of providing Yarm School with the same high-level of service at a substantially more cost effective rate.

SOLUTION

By utilising their expertise and extensive knowledge of the Gas & Electricity sector, GAS were able to negotiate with a supplier capable of providing Yarm School with the same high-level of service at a substantially more cost effective rate.

GAS’s experience and proven track record in the sector enabled them to identify an energy supplier that not only provided significant cost saving on their current contract, but was also an ideal fit for their business model.

As part of GAS’s ethos of providing the highest levels of customer care, Yarm have been allocated an experienced dedicated account manager to undertake energy usage reviews on a monthly basis. As part of the long-term strategy for ensuring costs are kept to a minimum, GAS will be installing a Monitoring and Targeting system that Yarm will be able to access via an online portal, providing them with a fully transparent view of their energy usage and costs.

 BENEFITS

  • Experience significant cost savings of £23,000 compared to their previous contract.
  • Remove the day-to-day restraints of energy management, allowing more time to focus on their core academic activities.
  • Maximise the accuracy of their financial forecasting with a tighter control over spending.

TESTIMONIAL

“Great Annual Savings are both knowledgeable and approachable along with offering a level of expertise that I had not experienced when using other consultants. Furthermore, the company offered Director level support which put me at ease knowing I was a valued customer.

I have found the full Great Annual Savings team to be polite, professional and very easy to work with and I would highly recommend their services to other businesses including schools.”
