“I am so impressed it is simply amazing”

“After school and breakfast clubs bookings took me the majority of my day, in addition invoicing parents was incredibly time consuming!! Now apart from the odd parent question or booking query, SchoolsBuddy has revolutionised this process, and now no longer impacts my day at all! 

School activity clubs also took days to organise, with photocopying, slips being returned, putting the requests manually onto a spreadsheet, choosing the children, creating registers, chasing for fees, etc…..now it takes an hour or so to upload the data into SchoolsBuddy, wait for the parents to select and then click a few buttons to allocate the clubs. AMAZING!!! 

I am so impressed it is simply amazing!”

“Life changing

“I love the app,  as a working parent I have found the app almost life changing for managing my child care needs, newsletters and my sons class activities, I love how all the information is in one place and it has a calendar so I can see what I have booked for the coming week. It’s a fantastic tool for parents to be kept informed by the school.”

Lucy, Hilltop Parent


A great system for managing booking of clubs, ordering school meals and parents evening sign up.

What modules Hilltop use…

Parent Consent for any event (inc School Trips)

Paperless parent consent for all event types with our clever, double verified consent requests. Quick to send, fast to respond and clearly displayed in the staff view.

After school clubs signup and allocation

Allow parents to register for after school clubs and allocate in one click. The events then automatically populates the pupil diary.

Breakfast Clubs & Wraparound Care

Allow parents to sign up & pay for single or multiple wrap around care clubs. Events populate into diaries and registers.

Fees / Payments

Create event based fees. When a parent consents for an event, you can allocate a cost to their balance which is visible to the pupil and their parents. This balance can be paid via the parents online.

Parent Communications

Using either our mobile apps with push notifications, emails or SMS we have it all covered.

Parents Evening Bookings

Create parent evening events and allow parents to sign up per teacher, per class. Fast, intuitive and events then populate into the teacher and parent diary.
