What people say about us

L Hewit, Finance Manager
Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School

"Working with Octavo’s Finance Service has been a great learning curve for me; not only has my confidence increased but I’ve found a new passion for accounts again. Our Consultant doesn’t talk down to me in any way, which is what I’ve found in the past with consultants. He has a very open approach and is happy for me to contact him at any time!"

Susan Papas, Executive Headteacher
Federation of Heavers Farm & Selsdon Primary Schools

"The best finance service our schools have ever had. Our consultant goes above and beyond, providing excellent advice and support. We would highly recommend this service to anyone."

Terry Cefai, Headteacher
Wolsey Infant and Nursery School

"I have found our Finance Consultant to be meticulous and thorough taking the time to not only ensure accuracy but to ensure the school staff members that he works with have a clear understanding of the current position."
