"Coteford governors first employed Groundtel in 1997 following recommendations from other local schools. We haven't been disappointed and have been happy to keep renewing our contract ever since. Chris and his team provide us with a reliable and friendly service. When they arrive they always check to see if there are any school priorities and make sure that any requests are followed through. We completely trust them to do what they say they will and to give us great advice as well as a great price.

As well as general maintenance Chris has provided us with support to develop special projects and put us in touch with other specialists when appropriate.

This year we went out to tender again. Groundtel offered us great value as well as a team we could trust. I would be happy to recommend them, and am happy they were recommended to me."

The groundsmen offer a consistently high standard of work, cutting the grass and trimming the bushes and shrubs. We really appreciate the fact that they come into the office during each visit, to enquire about any particular jobs to be completed that day. They undertake their duties responsibly around a busy school site and all clippings etc are cleared away fastidiously. The security records provided by Groundtel on their staff is of the highest standard."

“Groundtel have been Meadow High Schools groundsmen since I have worked here. Come drought or torrent they are here at the allotted time cutting, lining, trimming and anything else to keep the grounds looking great. As a school the building footprint is constantly changing through expansion, but whatever new areas of 'garden' are created, groundtel just instantly move in and maintain that area without discussion. They evolve with us. They are very approachable and flexible and will always do a little extra if asked. They also often do other non-contract work like planting trees at a very reasonable cost. We are very happy with their service overall.”

Alan Manning - Premises Manager at Meadow High School, Hillingdon, Middx

A Mills - Headteacher at Oak Farm Junior School, Hillingdon, Middx

"I employed Groundtel to maintain our extensive school grounds 7 years ago.

From the beginning they proved themselves to be extremely dependable and responsive to our requirements.

The grass is always cut regularly, such that it never looks unkempt and flowerbeds are well tended. I have always found them to be flexible and quick to help and advise. Similarly, if something needs doing at short notice e.g. mark out a sports’ track, it is done quickly and we have never been let down.

Furthermore, the staff are sensitive to the needs of a school and if we need the area to be kept quiet, will adapt their plans accordingly. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Groundtel as a grounds maintenance company."
