Improving lives & making a difference

Integra Schools is Integra’s offer of a unique set of cost-effective, forward-looking facilities management and specialist professional support solutions for educational establishments.

Integra is a South Gloucestershire Council (SGC) division who trade with schools, local public sector organisations, local businesses and provide services to the council. We were established as a single ‘Traded Services’ team in 2011 when the catering, cleaning and professional support services were brought together within the Council and the large majority of schools funding was devolved to schools. With input from South Gloucestershire schools, Traded Services rebranded as Integra, the trading arm of South Gloucestershire Council, in 2015

We have extensive, proven experience of working in the education arena, knowledgeable and committed staff, and a deep shared public sector ethos. Our Integra Schools team is committed to making a difference in schools and educational settings; our operational staff are regarded as members of the extended school family and our professional support staff are passionate about the work they do to support school leaders, teachers, support staff, parents, children and families
