XFE – A digital revolution for schools - Thorne Widgery

XfE was developed from the beginning with the needs of schools in mind, which is why it has been so effective

Over the last few years, we have been refining and improving our unique Xero for Education (XfE) online accounting system for schools.

This award-winning system has taken off and is now in use at more than 92 academy schools across the UK.

Led by our very own Innovation and Software Development team, this smart system is helping schools to keep on top of their finances by bringing the power of Xero to their accounting procedures.

Often replacing much older legacy systems, which are no longer effective, XfE has been a revolutionary step for many schools and we are delighted with the response and growth that this service is enjoying.

Sam King, our Head of Xero and X for Education, said: “When we started, schools had a very limited choice of cloud accounting software and many were stuck with old and ineffective systems, which made their jobs harder.

“XfE was developed from the beginning with the needs of schools in mind, which is why it has been so effective.”

But don’t just take our word for it, here is what some schools have had to say…

“As the Head, I need quality information to make informed decisions – if I am the ‘pilot’ then Xero is my financial ‘cockpit,’ from where I control the school’s operations.”

Andrew Teale, Head Teacher St Paul’s Primary School 

“I wouldn’t go back to my old software now – our experience with Xero has been very good.”
