Payroll for essential people

Payroll for the Education Sector

Payroll Services for Educational Establishments

We can help your school, college or academy to reduce your overheads and cut business costs by outsourcing payroll.

Outsourcing payroll may not be something that you have considered before, but if you would like to explore the opportunities for cost saving that a managed payroll service can offer to the private education sector, then do please get in touch and we will be happy to discuss the pros and cons with you.

Independent schools have always had full control of service provision, but in many cases, state schools have traditionally outsourced their payrolls to their local authority. With the transition to academy and/or free school status, these schools have far more flexibility with their budgets and service provision. With MATs (Multi Academy Trusts), this also gives them great purchasing power and the ability to consolidate certain departments.


Essential Payroll provides a full payroll service to schools, academies & free schools enabling them to reduce costs while having greater control of this complex process.

Features include:

  • Dedicated Payroll Administrator/Officer
  • Support for Local Government Pension schemes
  • Support for Teachers Pensions Scheme
  • Full pension reporting
  • Pay Grades and Scales (Pay Spines)
  • Detailed departmental & cost centre reporting
  • Support for nominal reporting
  • BACS payments
