Valuations for the Education Sector

What are Education Valuations?

Education providers from nurseries to universities require professional, accurate and independent valuations for a variety of purposes. It could be that your school is considering disposing of an asset and you need an up-to-date valuation, or your academy requires a current reinstatement cost for insurance purposes.

Whatever the reason, our RICS-regulated valuation surveyors are specialists in the education sector and are well-equipped to provide reliable valuation reports. We cover public and private sector organisations and consider everything from your establishment’s structure to its profitability.


How Do We Value Schools and Colleges?

Education valuations are rarely straightforward. First, we need to know what we’re valuing. It could be a whole school, buildings you no longer require or even playing fields. We then need to understand the reason. You could want a valuation for:

  • Financial reporting
  • Loan security
  • The acquisition or disposal of an asset
  • Rent reviews or lease renewals
  • Funding applications
  • Applications for academy status

We’ll determine the most appropriate valuation approach based on your particular requirements. The accuracy of valuations depends on the valuer’s knowledge and experience of the sector, and as education specialists, we understand all the complexities of educational assets and the relevant risks they bring.

More Than Just Bricks and Mortar

As experienced surveyors in this sector, we know there’s a lot more to education valuations than simply the bricks and mortar. For independent schools particularly, the work that goes on inside the buildings is crucial.

Where it’s required, we consider income profiling, profitability trends, cost benchmarking and the commercial outlook of the sector as a whole to produce valuations that empower you to make informed strategic and capital decisions.
