Our Services


Headteachers and Principals have an enormous workload and responsibility and need to manage numerous tasks and people simultaneously – it’s a role that can feel very lonely: DES can offer coaching, support and help with solutions at the highest level.

Bid Writing

We have an experienced team who have written successful bids for a range of private, public, educational and business clients. Talk to us about your aspirations and bids strategy.

Governor Support

Leadership has to set the ethos and culture of the school. DES is neutral and can discuss your Vision or School Improvement Strategy with you in a supportive and challenging way.


There are many types of school, including academies, free schools, studio schools and university technical colleges which have different focuses and governance provisions. DES can help you convert to academy status and also support you throughout a period of change.

Curriculum Planning

Achieving a broad and balanced curriculum is a basic aim of schools, so all pupils and students experience innovative and exciting programmes of study. DES’s experience can help you develop your curriculum and help raise standards and achievements.


Every organisation has rules, regulations and policies so that members of its community know how the organisation will deal with a wide range of issues. DES has a wide experience of developing and writing policies and ensuring yours are kept up-to-date.

School Buildings

School buildings need careful thought and planning so they deliver the best environment and give excellent value for money. Diamond Build plc, our sister company, has wide experience of delivering new school and refurbishment projects on time and in budget.

IT Support

We have a strong history of IT support within schools on Apple, PC and IOS platforms and have links to some ICT education specialists who are experienced advising and dealing with troubleshooting and development issues.

School Environment

Making your school a safe and clean environment is a big responsibility. Our sister companies, Diamond Fire Safety and Diamond Facilities, have the expertise you need. They can audit your environment and make affordable and effective recommendations for improvement.
