Mrs S Lanni – Executive Head Teacher at Pheasey Park Farm Primary School, Birmingham

We have worked very closely with Lisa Peacock for several years both as an independent consultant and more recently through Lighthouse Education Consultancy.

During the several years that our large school and children’s centre have been supported by Lisa we have received exceptional service at affordable prices.

Lisa produces a high volume of work while consistently maintaining high standards of quality and accuracy with our finance and business planning.

During this time our School and Children’s Centre have grown in numbers, organisation and efficiency.  Our Financial Management and Business Planning has significantly developed enabling us to accurately track our financial position and continue to develop and grow in an ever changing educational environment.

Our Reporting to Governors is now timely, accurate and efficient and we are able to produce finance reports to cover our legal obligations for all stakeholders.

The service we have received has been without question:

• Efficient
• Affordable
• Knowledgeable
• Organised
• Personalised
• Accurate
• Reliable
• Timely

Charlotte Campbell – School Bursar at St. Thomas More Catholic School

I am the school Bursar at St Thomas More Catholic school and we have recently used Lighthouse Education Consultancy to cover my 12 month maternity leave.

Lisa covered all aspects of my finance management role during my absence and provided a friendly, professional and efficient service. Lisa has many years of school finance experience which added value to our department including some developments in procedures and systems. It enabled me to enjoy my maternity leave knowing that things were left in good hands, with someone very experienced and knowledgeable.

I can’t thank Lisa enough for this. We will continue to use Lighthouse for any future needs and highly recommend their service.

Helen Kimberley – Office Manager at St Thomas More Catholic School

We are a maintained, cheque book school and Lisa has worked with us over the past 10 years as our education financial consultant.  She is extremely efficient, professional, friendly and always readily available via telephone or e-mail – no job is too small.  

Lisa has trained me on using the budgeting software, produces the quarterly governors’ monitoring reports and audited our year end accounts for both public and private funds.  

Lisa has in-depth knowledge of education funding for both maintained and academy schools, has vast experience in supporting schools both as a consultant and prior work as a school business manager.  

I would highly recommend Lisa.

Trinity High School, Manchester

I am the new School Business Leader at Trinity High C of E School. The previous Business Manager had used Lighthouse Education Consultancy, and I was able to meet with Lisa before I even started at the school.

Lisa’s experience combined with her knowledge of the school, has been so beneficial, in my first months.

We have termly visits booked to coincide with, returns. This has been invaluable in my first year of working in an Academy. Lisa is always positive and as well as the visits has given advice over the phone and by email.

I would thoroughly recommend the service and will continue to use Lighthouse Education Service going forward.
