We Know Schools

The School Office provides all things financial for schools. Our team brings together many years of experience in education not only in compliance, accounting and audit, but also in all other financial requirements.


Our wealth of experience enables us to understand your problems and help you to resolve them. We work with schools throughout New Zealand, of various roll sizes and deciles and we are very much aware that each school is different.


The School Office will work alongside you and tailor our assistance to your needs and provide cost and time savings.


Schools have no equivalent in the corporate or business world. Our specialist knowledge in the field of education and the financial needs of schools means that we have developed financial systems that are specific to your needs.


You know how unique your school environment is. That is why we adapt to each situation by getting to know you and listening to your needs.


Our aim is to make a positive difference for you.

"Being new to the role of Business Manager at Papamoa College, I certainly have appreciated the support, assistance, and knowledge from the helpful and friendly team at The School Office.We have recently started using Hubdoc and Approvalmax alongside Xero, and the support has been invaluable.
I would definitely recommend TSO to anyone wishing to get the most out of Xero and their business."

Mandy Brown
Business Manager
Papamoa College

"The School Office Team was amazing at a time when we had been blindsided by huge system changes.
They made what could have been an absolute nightmare of a time so easy. Calm, professional and very very patient with us while we learned a much easier way of doing things. Audits are almost painless now, and that's saying something!
I cannot recommend The School Office team more highly!"

Molly Wright
Executive Officer
Warrington School, Coastal Otago

"Nothing is too much trouble for The School Office. Our school has been using TSO's services for day-to-day support and end of year financial reporting, for many years now. The combination of Xero, Hubdoc and Approval Max software is a winning one. Add to that the professionalism, expertise and vast knowledge of educational requirements, helpfulness and friendliness of the staff, you will find it hard to match the service they provide. I would highly recommend The School Office to other schools."

Kath Williamson
Executive Officer
Mount Maunganui Primary

"Our school has worked with The School Office, in particular Glenis, Dan and Denise for many years now. At all times their support has been invaluable, they are efficient and always helpful. We have been lucky to have them develop reports in Xero to help with presentation to our Board which has made attending Finance meetings much easier. Their support with our financial systems and Audit is amazing and I would not make it through these times without them."

“I can't speak highly enough of The School Office.
An amazing team of dedicated knowledgeable staff, willing to go above and beyond. 
Patient, caring and part of your workplace family.”

Melissa Rogers

"It's been a year since we've been engaged with the staff of The School Office, I would highly recommend their services to any other school who isn't happy with their present provider. All staff can be easily contacted, and are always willing to assist.  
We were left high and dry by our previous provider without warning, but moving to The School Office couldn’t have worked out better in the end. I hope our relationship continues to grow in a positive and vibrant way for the betterment of our children, their families and our community."
