Whilst I find it disingenuous of you to couch a sales pitch as a FoI request, and would not, therefore, be willing to accept an approach for business from your company, the answer to your email is as follows:

1. This School spent some £14,000 on hiring vehicles with/without drivers over this past year.
2. We hire minibuses/coaches sometimes
3. We do not have a contract for lease/hire of vehicles
4. n/a
5. I do not think we would be in the market for a lease/hire contract as our requirements are irregular and we often require a driver.
