The Manchester and Trafford School Business Leader Forum was formed in 2009.  The forum originated as two separate borough groups which were subsequently merged when the Chair of the Trafford forum moved to work in a Manchester school. At present we have over 50 secondary school members, and we continue to grow!

The forum has historically been run by a volunteer school business leader, however, due to increasing workloads and more and more demands being placed on business leaders the forum members made the decision to appoint Redrambler Limited to provide administration and management support to the forum from January 2020.

The members highly value the group and it has often been described as a lifeline due to the support and networking opportunities it has offered over the years.

Our vision and aims are:-

Membership is open to anyone who works within a school business environment in the Manchester or Trafford area, in any phase or type of school e.g. maintained, academy etc. No matter what your job title is, School Business Manager, Finance Manager, Director of Finance – you are welcome to join us!

We also have a forum within the online portal for Site Managers, HR Managers and IT Managers.  This will enable them to start networking and benefiting from all the opportunities listed above.

Please note – SBL’s will have access to all forums. Site Managers, HR Managers and IT Managers access will be restricted to their respective forums.

If you wish to join, please click here to complete a registration form.

We are affiliated with The Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL).

Thank you

Manchester and Trafford SBL Forum committee members and Redrambler Limited
