Become a Commercial Supporter...

The Commercial Supporter Scheme has been designed for organisations who want to provide advice, goods, or services to our schools. Due to the many and diverse pressures on our school leaders’ time, they are a notoriously difficult clientele to reach through conventional channels.


Becoming a Commercial Supporter offers a unique opportunity for you to connect with large numbers of educational decision makers in the North East. It provides you with a great opportunity to build your profile, gain invaluable market intelligence, showcase your successes, and most importantly, support the North East’s schools and young people.

Our Members

The SCHOOLS NorthEast network consists of all 1,300 schools in the North East region. Regardless of size, phase, academy status or any other variable, there are just two boxes to tick to be included in our network…you simply have to be a school in the North East! Whilst we exist to support schools in their entirety, our main stakeholders are Head Teachers, School Business Managers and Governors.

Our Update

Over 3000 school leaders, politicians and education enthusiasts receive the SCHOOLS NorthEast Weekly Update. By becoming a Commercial Supporter you will have the opportunity to submit events and resources for inclusion. We also have a monthly Events Update in which you can publicise your events.

Our Events

Recieve priority invites and advanced notice to our events, including our annual Patron’s Dinner, our Head Teacher's Summit and our School Business Management Conference. These events sold out fast last year so don't miss the chance to get involved. Commercial Supporters also receive a 20% discount on all sponsorship options.

Our Website

Our website has been designed to ensure we serve both the needs of our schools and our Commercial Supporters. Gain access to your own account to create a profile, upload case studies, testimomials and photos. Advertise your events via our 'clash diary' and promote your venue through our online 'Venue Finder.'
