Independent Schools

Specialists in independent schools. A different kind of service

Nviro is a leading cleaning company specialising in the education and independent school sectors in London, the South and South East.

We have a pedigree spanning three decades, a team of 1,300 people and we clean 2.5million square metres of space every day.

The challenges of the independent schools sector are unique. We know you need a different kind of service to deliver clean, hygienic and safe environments in which everyone can thrive.

We work with independent schools across the range – boys, girls and co-educational, large and small, day and boarding.

We understand that every school is different and has unique needs that may change throughout the year. That’s why Nviro programmes are tailored to enhance your estate, the day-to-day running of the school, its culture and your reputation.

We work in partnership with you, taking time to understand the inner workings of your school, so we can add value as a strategic partner.

We adapt to your school’s unique requirements and priorities – identifying where we can deliver efficiencies, reduce costs, improve standards, resolve issues, implement effective shift patterns, and reduce carbon footprint.

We then deliver outstanding service through dedicated managers and highly trained staff, using cutting-edge cleaning methods and technologies.

Why outsource with Nviro?

Achieving more while protecting your budget and your people.

Outsourcing cleaning to specialists is often viewed as more expensive than an independent school managing its own cleaning team. At Nviro, we always deliver savings in this sector – and improve quality in the process.

Safeguarding. Safety first – and always.

Safeguarding is the number one priority for any independent school – and it’s ours too.

Our comprehensive recruitment procedures give you peace of mind that every team member has been thoroughly vetted before they set foot in your school.

These include DBS checks, taking references, and thorough vetting to ensure our people are qualified, have the right to work in the UK, and are cleared to work with vulnerable people.

Our managers are trained so they have the skills to recruit new team members with a full understanding of safeguarding processes.

The compliance software UComply is embedded into our recruitment and HR processes, carrying out digital Right to Work checks and continually updating with the latest legislation to ensure all Nviro people are legally compliant and can represent your school well.
