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 North East network consists of all 1,300 schools in the North East region. Regardless of size, phase, academy status or any other variable all schools in the North East are part of our network.   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 North East 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.  There are also sponsorship opportunities for the Weekly Update starting from as low as £45.

Our Events
