How YPO can help you...

We’re the spark to brighten up your contracts

Like most schools and academies, we’re a public sector organisation too. We were set up in the 1970s to help schools and local authorities save money on products and contract agreements such as food and catering, buildings and grounds maintenance, ICT and energy.

We work with major energy suppliers to deliver competitive and transparent prices, with terms and conditions that benefit our education customers - along with great service too.

Our customers receive bills directly from the suppliers on our energy contract with all costs and charges transparently detailed for them. They can be assured that we’ve worked hard to achieve competitive pricing on their behalf.
