The Key Group, of which Arbor is a proud brand, serves school leaders and trusts across the UK providing authoritative guidance and intuitive tools that support school leadership.
We work across the full diversity of schools and locations, from small rural and coastal primaries to the largest trusts and local authorities in the country.
We recognise that each school and trust is on a journey and school leaders need to identify their specific context, their own path and the next step in that journey. This process requires more than just shared values in a school, it requires the knowledge, data, context and confidence to bring others with you in effecting change.
That's why we're here. We put the power back in the hands of those leading our schools and trusts, by equipping them with remarkable products & services. The Key Group is home to 5 brands, each the leading provider in its category including Arbor, ScholarPack, Integris, The Key and GovernorHub. Over 380 colleagues deliver our award-winning services and serve 19,000 schools.
