After recently hiring a dedicated Lettings Manager, Adam Cloney, WPT is ramping up its efforts to showcase and provide facilities hire opportunities for the local communities in Rotherham and Gainsborough.
WPT is now managing facilities lettings from across six sites – Cranworth Road, Wickersley School & Sports College, Clifton Community School, Rawmarsh Community School, Thrybergh Academy and The Gainsborough Academy – from the central hub using SchoolHire.
SchoolHire is an enterprise that encourages social and communal interaction and promotes healthier lifestyles by opening up school facilities to the wider public. It also allows us to manage facilities hire in-house in a much more effective and efficient way than we’ve done before.
Using the SchoolHire system, you will be able to filter and find a perfect facility for you – whether that’s a performance hall, an astro pitch or a bouldering room.
The website allows you to be much more involved in catering your hire experience. Taking away the lengthy process of going back and forth with emails, this efficient and modern approach means that you can log in at any time, check availability across the facilities, block book and cancel sessions through SchoolHire.
Another great advantage is that there is far easier access and awareness of other facilities across the Trust. So, if your go-to school isn’t available on a particular day, we may be able to accomodate you at one of our other local schools.

Adam Cloney, Lettings Manager at Wickersley Partnership Trust, said: “The Trust’s aim is to maximise the use of its school facilities to help add value within our community. Moving across to SchoolHire’s system helps in our efforts to achieve that goal because it is a far smoother and more accessible facilities hire process.
“SchoolHire is a brilliant tool and allows for users to see the availability of all Trust facilities in a much more transparent way.
“Using SchoolHire will help to shine more light on the positive steps we take at Wickersley Partnership Trust.”
Charlie Gothold, Co-Founder/Director of SchoolHire, said: “We are excited to expand SchoolHire into the Rotherham area, providing an opportunity for existing customers of WPT, as well as new customers, to book WPT’s excellent facilities, across the various schools.
“Working with Adam and Matt to get everything set up has been a pleasure and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with them for many years to come.
“Our hope and expectation is that WPT will be able to leverage the benefits of our platform to streamline the administration of lettings, significantly decreasing time spent on the admin side, which will lead to more time to invest in customer care and marketing. Coupled with the revenue generation benefits that SchoolHire brings will also lead to WPT’s lettings income increasing substantially over time.”
We have lots of spaces and opportunities for the local community – take a look at our handy virtual tour video.
