A message from Jason Barrie.

Bridgecoast Finance Director.


As a broker specialising in schools, I strive to bridge the gap between financial constraints and educational aspirations. My mission is to assist these institutions in maximizing their purchasing power, sourcing the most cost-effective solutions, and optimizing their operational efficiency. By doing so, I aim to empower schools to focus their resources on what truly matters: creating an exceptional learning experience for their students.

Bridgecoast’s approach is centered around personalized and tailored solutions that cater to the unique needs of each school. We work closely with school administrators, teachers, and staff to gain a deep understanding of their goals, challenges, and vision. By building strong relationships and open lines of communication, we ensure that we are aligned with their objectives and can provide the most relevant and effective support.
