Welcome to the Association of Business Management in Norfolk Schools

Our objective is to provide a forum for all those working in schools in the county of Norfolk who have responsibility for the management and delivery of support services. We want to include everyone, regardless of job title. So, if you are a Finance Officer, or a Secretary, or an Administration Manager, or anything else, you are welcome here (and please don’t be offended if we just use the title ‘Business Managers’ for short).

Our group meets regularly and provides a forum for managers to network and share their experiences. We also work with a number of partners who are committed to developing services for schools in Norfolk. Our group is also affiliated with Institute of School Business Leaders (ISBL), the national association representing our roles in schools. This affiliation entitles ABMNS members to a £50 discount on ISBL membership – just quote the following code when applying – c5KFiLog .

Membership to ABMNS is free to those working in schools. Please visit our membership page for more details on joining our organisation.

Our most recent AGM was held on the 10th July and a copy of the AGM minutes can be found under the Committee tab.

2019 - Annual Conference - Octagon Barn, Norwich, NR13 5FH - 30th April 2019

ABMNS are proud to share information with you about our planned 2019 Conference. The committee have (and are) working hard to make this our best yet! The theme for the conference is ‘Creativity’ which I am sure you will agree being creative is something we all do every day. Taking on board your feedback, we have changed the venue and hope that the Octagon Barn will provide a brilliant location for our next Conference. We are also delighted that Kev House and Nickii Messer are booked to provide keynote talks. We are now working hard to secure a good blend of new exhibitors along with loyal long standing ones. If you have any suggestions please don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can book our place at the conference NOW - just head to our Events page. Remember, this is your conference and a chance for you to network, learn and meet like-minded colleagues. Please do give this priority when looking at your professional development and personal wellbeing. In return we promise to provide an enjoyable and relevant Conference, accessible to all Business Managers, Bursars, Administrators, Office Managers and Secretaries. Exhibitors can register for an exhibition stand by visiting our Events page.
