Francis Holland Schools expands cleaning contract following acquisition

Following its recent acquisition of The Hampshire School in Chelsea, Francis Holland Schools has expanded its partnership with cleaning specialist, The Clean Space, to support its preparation of the new site for full occupation later this year.

Since 2023 The Clean Space has been responsible for all cleaning at The Francis Holland Schools Trust which previously comprised of two leading independent girls' schools located in central London, having been awarded a contract worth in excess of £500K per annum. The Trust's facilities include historical buildings, newly renovated spaces and a modern sixth form building, so require a range of services including daily cleaning, periodic deep cleaning, sani-bins and hygiene consumables, kitchen deep cleaning, and ad-hoc maintenance cleaning. This involves a 40 plus person cleaning team working across multiple sites.

Under the terms of the expanded deal, The Clean Space will provide ongoing flexible cleaning arrangements and routines at the newly acquired school site as it is remodelled. This will include working closely with the school’s facilities team to be ready for additional once-off projects and specialised cleaning works that are required to support any building work.

When the work is completed, by September this year, the Francis Holland’s Junior School at Sloane Square will relocate to the site of The Hampshire School and open Francis Holland Preparatory School for girls aged 4-11. The Clean Space will continue to be responsible for all cleaning at this an iconic Grade II listed building in the heart of Chelsea, just off the King’s Road, which is more than double the space currently occupied by the Junior School.

Wesley Smith, Sales & Marketing Manager at The Clean Space, said: “The expansion of our partnership with the Trust is testament to our ability to understand and meet their needs with pragmatic and innovative cleaning methods to ensure a customised cleaning strategy. The strategic changes we have implemented at their sites has led to improved cleanliness standards and optimised resource allocation, achieving a balance of cost and exceptional service. This is a true partnership of like-minded organisations.”
