iExcellence produce suites of products to help independent schools comply with legal and regulatory requirements, plus the latest best practice. Without this support, heads, bursars and governors risk letting their school, their pupils and parents down if they don’t keep on top of their responsibilities

They only work with the leading sector advisers in developing products and magazines so that they are useful, timely, cost-effective and accurate.

iExcellence was set up by Andrew Maiden (pictured below) to help heads, bursars and governors be more effective in fulfilling their roles and duties.

Andrew launched Funding for Independent Schools (the leading magazine for heads and bursars) in 2006, The Independent School Governor’s Handbook in 2009 (the third edition was published in 2015) and the Independent School Awards in 2010. He sold them to TES Global (publishers of leading education weekly TES, among many other publications) in 2014. He carries out video interviews and webchats for TES.

He launched British International Schools magazine in 2012 in a joint venture with ISC Research. And, in 2016, he launched the British International School Awards. Also in 2016, he launched Governance Insight, the scenario-based magazine for independent school governors.



He was a governor of a primary school for several years and was the chair of the finance committee. He is also the former chair of a literary festival in Warwick and is a fellow of the RSA.
