Easily Accessible For Parents, Students and Teachers On Their Favourite Devices.
Your workload can get heavy when you use a mix of text messages, emails, letters and more to reach parents. That is why we create School Apps. One app, with everything in one place for parents and students. All while we help you save time as well.
There are many reasons why Schools choose to get started with their own App. From bringing School Communications to one place, monitoring Parental Engagement and even helping to realise cost savings. Discover some of the most frequent use cases below.
EdUnity is a company that was built by students and teachers. We prioritise the school experience, and understands the intuitive needs of educators - making us a natural fit for many schools and colleges around the world.

A School App, also known as a "School Mobile Application" is a piece of software which can be installed on a mobile, tablet or other smart device. School Apps are used for a wide range of purposes including parent communication, information sharing and school software management. School Apps should not be confused with portals, parent or gateway apps that offer a more restrictive set of features and limitations.
EdUnity School Apps are built specifically to the school allowing for customisation of the design, features and functionality. Other School App providers can market services as 'Parent Apps' or 'Gateways' that can be downloaded to a mobile device and used in limited ways. These services, usually require schools to share a universal app which can limit functionality and negatively impair performance. Applications that are built specifically to a school's requirements allow for a better understanding of long-term needs and will ensure technology scales appropriately.
EdUnity offers dedicated support with all subscription plans. This includes Live Chat assistance within the School App Manager, Email and Telephony Support. Schools also benefit from access to a School Solutions Advisor to get the most out of an app during their subscription as well as built-in 'On Screen Guidance' to dramatically reduce training and on-boarding requirements.

A range of subscription plans exist to make apps accessible to all schools, a fundamental part of our mission at EdUnity. These plans start at £80 per month up to £250 per month for large schools. We do not charge any set-up fees or usage quotas. For more advanced configurations, such as for a University, or Multi-Academy Trust we advise speaking to a Solutions Advisor who will be able to assist further.
We accept payments via BACS, Bank Transfer, Cheque or Credit/Debit Card. All subscriptions are billed annually and prices exclude VAT where applicable.
No, EdUnity does not offer a free trial. As every app is built specifically to your school it simply isn't possible to. We can however go through demonstrations and explore requirements in detail before there is any commitment. You can also try our free demo app by clicking here.

Every school app is made up of individual features, for example, an in-app mailbox or a calendar page. These features, when added together create the overall app for your School. We have many features available both created by EdUnity, as well as a wide range of third-parties in the EdUnity App Store.
The EdUnity App Store is a place you can go to discover new features, apps and services that plugin and connect with your School App. As a result of the EdUnity App Store, your app can get smarter over time, driven by new third-parties and apps that will be made available.
We release new features and improvements every month. Once more, it's our schools who decide what we release. Clients can vote on new functionality and features, so over time, your app will keep getting smarter and better!
That's up to you! It can be within just a couple of weeks by the time all changes and iterations are finished. We advise schools to get in early, busy periods around April and the Summer Holidays can mean higher demand and may slightly increase waiting times.
