Rising company of the year

In a significant recognition of innovation and excellence within the education sector, XfE has been awarded the prestigious title of Rising Company of the Year at the Multi-Academy Trust Association Awards.

Created by the academy accounting specialists at Thorne Widgery, XfE has rapidly become a cornerstone technology in schools across the UK.

XfE’s remarkable journey began as a visionary project by Thorne Widgery – designed to revolutionise financial management in educational settings.

Today, its impact extends to a broad array of schools and accountancy practices nationwide, celebrated for its robust integration with Xero.

The platform enhances financial oversight for budget holders through detailed access and bespoke, industry-specific reporting capabilities, streamlining school financial management into a more efficient process.

The Education & Skills Funding Agency and the Department for Education (DfE) has also endorsed XfE, highlighting its pivotal role and preferred status in advancing educational financial management.

Sam King, Head of XfE, expressed his enthusiasm for the platform’s achievements and prospects. He said: “It is fantastic to be getting more recognition for XfE at such a prestigious set of awards.

“This year has seen us take large strides in the development of our platform and our ongoing growth.

“None of this would be possible though, without the support of our team and expanding number of users across the UK.”

This accolade follows closely on the heels of Thorne Widgery’s win of the Total Xero Award 2023, a testament to the innovative strides made within XfE.

Renowned for its reliability, cost-effectiveness, and user-friendly interface, XfE is supported by Thorne Widgery’s highly skilled academy team, ensuring that every user experiences the full range of benefits that the platform offers.

“The recognition as Rising Company of the Year is not only a milestone for XfE but also a beacon of innovation and excellence in the education sector, promising enhanced financial management and operational efficiency for educational institutions across the UK,” added Sam.
