At Schoolcomms, we know that when it comes to a child’s education, parents matter

Parental engagement has a very positive impact on a child’s learning.

We want to help schools engage parents more closely by developing a two-way relationship with the home, improving learning outcomes for each and every student. We know that technology alone can’t do this, but using it to enhance the relationship between school, parents, and students is the key.

How did we get here?

It all started in 2003 when we saw a missing link between messaging systems and the schools MIS. We brought together a small team of people and developed Schoolcomms to fully integrate with SIMS. It began with Messaging, and gradually we developed more features.

By 2008, we had added Import from SIMS, writing back to SIMS and Attendance features. After having our first sale in 2004, we started to grow, steadily at first, then more quickly after 2008, once the product had developed. By this time our small team had expanded, and in 2009, we moved into an office in Bude, Cornwall.

2010 brought a very snowy winter, which saw many schools realise the real benefit of having an efficient communication system to send important messages to parents in bulk, and so Schoolcomms continued to flourish…


Back to the present – we now provide a sophisticated parent app integrating our features for messaging, reporting, club management, cashless payments, and much more so that parents can engage from any place at any time. Our all-in-one parental engagement solution is now trusted by over 3,000 schools across the UK. In January 2017, Schoolcomms was acquired by ParentPay Group, the merger bringing together two leading lights in the provision of web and mobile delivered payment and engagement services for schools and parents.
