Birkin is an education specialist, cleaning over 100 schools and academies of all sizes.

Schools & Academies

We know from first-hand experience the sheer range of different types of facilities which require cleaning. Whether it’s a Victorian School or a modern purpose-built state-of-the-art Academy, we understand your requirements and the scale of what is involved.

So no matter how many classrooms, toilet blocks, staff rooms, how large the dining room is or whether you have one or more Sport Halls, our passion for service will ensure your building looks its best.

Team Birkin will take away the stress and provide you with a clean building so as the Bursar of a primary school, or Business Manager of a Secondary school you’ll be able to concentrate on your day job.

Before engaging Team Birkin, we will encourage you to speak to a current client. They’ll confirm we deliver on our promises, and provide a flexible service which changes with the needs of the individual school.
