How we save time and money for schools and other educational institutions

In 2012 Make It Cheaper helped 878 schools, academies, colleges and universities an average of £2,228

Key facts

  • Schools' fixed-term energy contracts "roll over" onto higher rates when they come to an end
  • Suppliers don't let you know when to act, but if you miss the boat you end up paying around 30% more
  • We're proactive about getting in touch at the right time and searching the whole market to find the best rates available
  • Schools typically save £2,228 when they use our free, impartial service

Customer comments:

Debbie Lindsley at The Henley College in Henley-On-Thames:

Christina [one of Make It Cheaper's saving experts] was most efficient and made the process of changing suppliers very easy.

Vicki Appleton at Salterlee Primary School in Halifax:

The member of staff who dealt with the process was very good at explaining things. You helped us save over £600 a year. We are a tiny primary school and every amount saved can go into our education budget to help our 106 children. I wish all our costs could be so easily reduced.

Steve Wells at St. Michael's School Easthampstead in Bracknell:

You quickly found all of the supply details to enable quotes to be provided, followed everything up with emails.

Stuart Jenkin at Copsewood School in Coventry:

I find it very helpful to be sent the template letter for transferring the contract. I'd find it helpful if you could send each customer a summary page with each successful transfer - outlining the options from different providers and the most successful one. It would be useful to see a bit more information, apart from that everything is very good.

Karen Troughton at Granby Primary School in Leicester:

The representative I spoke to was knowledgeable, helpful and not at all pushy, which in itself for me is always a positive attribute.

Helen Bjergfelt at Greenslade Pre-School in Bristol:

Sometimes it can be hard to get things organised as a committee decision is needed. The advisors were very helpful allowing me time to organise this and ringing me back when arranged.
