Independent School Apps

A good school app makes everyone’s lives easier: it is an instantly accessible reference hub for questions parents routinely want to know, and a messaging centre through which the school can easily and quickly push information.  The school controls all information on the app and parents personalise what they see by opting into topics relevant to them.

Brand enhancement

Your app would be branded with your logo, colours, motto etc and is simple and intuitive to use.  Having an app is seen as a progressive step and will positively surprise existing as well as prospective parents.

What does it do?

The app is a one-stop shop for parents, carrying school news, an events calendar, key information, a contacts section, push notification messages, picture galleries, forms, a feedback channel, pdf documents, videos, the school’s social media channels and more.  Much of this content can be automatically fed into the app so you do not have to duplicate work, and the app is accessible on Apple and Android devices worldwide so parents abroad or travelling can easily keep in touch with everything that’s going on too.

Process and cost

We deliver you free of charge a fully-working, branded unpublished app within two weeks, and training in how to use the content management system to control it (very easy).  You trial and test it with colleagues for up to a month.

If you decide to proceed we build a new version with any reconfigurations and design changes needed.  You upload initial information on the app and it is then ready to launch to parents. The cost varies depending on degree of customisation and any bespoke work required but is agreed in advance and generally falls between £1,500 and £5,000 per annum with a one-off set up of £500-2,000.


Piota (Put It On The App) is a specialist school app company based in London and Essex.  We believe our apps are the most flexible and feature-rich currently available, and we have supplied about 200+ UK and international schools in the past 18 months.
