The Key

The Key

The Key provide high-quality, trusted information and online solutions to the education and wider public sector. The Sunday Times named them as one of the companies making a “big impact on Britain”. Their market-leading information services, professional development and online platform solutions help busy professionals work with increased confidence, knowledge and capacity. At the heart of everything they do is a passionate commitment to helping organisations save time, work smarter and deliver better results for the communities they serve.

Rooted in education, committed to intelligent support

The Key are driven by a public service ethos, from their history and roots in serving the education sector to their growth into supporting the wider public sector. Every day they answer new questions from school leaders and governors, and every week engage with local authorities, multi-academy trusts and leading figures in the public sector. These deep connections give unparalleled insights into concerns, trends and good practice.

Information services

The national information services, The Key for School Leaders and The Key for School Governors, support nearly half of schools in England. Members have instant access to impartial information and guidance, practical resources and answers to questions on all aspects of school leadership and management.

The Key have also developed a Compliance Tracker tool to help maintained schools and academies track their statutory obligations and monitor compliance, all in one place. The customisable tracker covers the major areas of school compliance, from safeguarding to financial management, and is a personalised benefit for members of The Key for School Leaders through your ConnectEd Membership.
