“Due to budget constraints across many areas of the school, we needed a lease structure that was both affordable and sustainable. Maxxia provided a structure that suited us perfectly; allowing us to proceed with immediate and on-going IT requirements across the school. Without the help of Maxxia, the school would have been £48,000 out of pocket. What was refreshing is that Maxxia were not looking to gain anything out of this process; it just formed part of their transparent and honest approach to relationship management”

John Wiffen, Director of Finance, The Green School

What can we use asset finance for?

We help schools to fund a wide range of equipment and support the renewal and maintenance of school estates. IT equipment is very popular with technology taking greater prominence within the school curriculum.

But we can also help in other areas such as fencing and security systems, grounds maintenance equipment, school minibuses, mobile classrooms, kitchen and sports equipment. If you need new equipment for your establishment and would like to spread the cost, please ask how we can help.

Suitable for all educational establishments, our school funding solutions mean that you get the latest equipment when you need it. You simply pay a regular rental fee for a pre-agreed period of time, helping to spread the cost over a longer period of time.

Maxxia is committed to offering transparency in all of our school leasing products. This ensures that you see exactly what the costs are at every stage of the school leasing lifecycle, as well as any charges you will incur if you extend your lease.

In addition to our transport school funding solutions, we give you market-leading asset management software, so that you monitor the whole process from start to finish.


Our school leasing structure supports green initiatives and meets the latest government directives on sustainability. Where possible, we provide energy-efficient equipment and use renewable energy sources. For end-of-cycle assets (particularly ICT), we try to reuse them, and we recycle or even repair them whenever applicable. (By the way, we erase data that’s left on your leased ICT equipment before reselling or recycling).

At the end of your school lease agreement we offer a free asset collection service and a disposal process that complies with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive, to ensure that all assets are either resold or recycled properly.
