SchoolPost is joining forces with Firefly

We're pleased to announce that SchoolPost has become part of Firefly Learning, a leading provider of software for learning continuity and parental engagement. It has been an amazing journey growing SchoolPost from our first few schools eleven years ago to over one hundred and fifty today, and we believe that combining forces with a larger organisation with a shared vision and values will help us to continue to build on this. Firefly is trusted by more than five hundred leading schools, and we're confident that it will be a great long-term home.

Day-to-day, it's very much business as usual: the same team will continue to look after and develop SchoolPost as a standalone product just as we do today, but with the backing and resources of the wider Firefly team to help us accelerate our plans. Of course, we'll continue to integrate and cooperate closely with all our other partners too.

You can see further details on Firefly’s blog, or please contact us as usual with any questions.
