The Solution

Using the data provided by NCS, AFM were able to model ESFA compliant operating lease funding for the project based on savings from energy usage and tube replacement and maintenance costs, delivering at the same time an immediate “bottom line” surplus to the Trust from the outset of the project.

Why Choose NCS?

  • NCS has a proven track record of working with Schools in the area providing LED Lighting solutions
  • After running a mini tender, NCS were chosen due to their competitive pricing and quality offering


  • Electricity savings of around 60%
  • Lighting quality was significantly enhanced helping both teachers and students
  • Reduced maintenance cost and effort
  • Carbon reduction of 63 tonnes per year
  • The project generated immediate net savings to the Trust even after the payment of the operating lease rentals
  • Significant estimated net lifetime savings of £413k

“This is a really important initiative during times of budget squeeze. Staff have seen lots of installation activity and excellent new lighting but understand that we are not being extravagant and that this is a very clever and strategic solution”. Sam Luker, the Trust’s Operations Director “It’s astounding the difference it has made. Removing the financial barriers through a creative and innovative approach enabled us to ensure that all areas of the school were fit for purpose, and pupils are provided with the very best learning environment possible. It wasn’t until the new LED lighting was installed that we realised we really were in the dark…!” Simon Godden, Trinity’s Principal
