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

We are all extremely proud of our 2019 Conference and what it offered all who attended. For many this was seen as our best Conference yet! A big thank you to everyone who supported our event. In particular a very big thank you to Graham and AVFE for supplying all the audio visual equipment for the Conference. Keep an eye out for information on future events being planned by the committee.
