School Notices harnesses the value of independent school parent and alumni trading by offering a national, digital noticeboard with fundraising revenue streams for those schools who are members. The team are raising finance to accelerate growth and drive international expansion.
School Notices is a digital fundraising and membership platform exclusively for independent schools, their parents and businesses interested in targeting the HNW sector. School Notices provides:
- Member schools with a digital noticeboard which raises much needed funds for their internal and charitable causes and a home for inter-parent and alumni business promotion.
- Member parents with a free trading platform for buying, selling or renting items and finding older children holiday or gap year work within a trusted and like-minded community.
- Member businesses with a direct and much sought after route into a highly desirable advertising demographic via website, direct email newsletters and our magazine which now reaches 20k families.
By initially focusing on independent schools, the business has been able to target the high net worth sector to maximise value for both its member schools and for early business growth. The business is now profitable with over 57 member schools and over 3,500 member parents.
Business advertising clients include Strutt & Parker, Rathbone Investment Management, Abercrombie & Kent and leading public schools advertising to their feeder prep schools.
We now have plans to scale the business into all schools and universities, both here and overseas and have recently launched Uni Notices with Trinity College, Oxford as our first member.
