Partnerships for Schools


Partnerships for Schools (PfS) is the joint venture company that was set up in 2004 to deliver the UK's Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme. In March 2006, PfS also took on responsibility for delivering the Academies programme, integrating delivery into BSF where possible.

PfS is a partnership between the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) (formerly the Department for Education and Skills), Partnerships UK and private sector companies.

Every state secondary school in England – around 3,500 in total – will be rebuilt or refurbished by PfS over the duration of the programme, affecting around 3.3 million young people and thousands of teachers.

As of September 2008 22 local authorities have now selected their private sector partner for BSF and in so doing have signed contracts worth £2.5bn that will see nearly 150 schools rebuilt or refurbished.
