Our story

Your trusted independent school community and marketplace

Who are we?

School Notices was launched in 2014 by two parents as an online community that connects the dots between independent schools, parents, alumni, and businesses in a way that benefits everyone.

Taking the principle of the old-fashioned school noticeboard, we have created a cutting-edge website where parents and alumni can connect with other like-minded members across a network of schools in the UK. Members can buy and sell within a trusted community; businesses can reach out to our members; and schools benefit from the fundraising support from advertising revenue.

Free-to-post marketplace

Our website is free to join and parents, staff and alumni can use School Notices to buy, sell and advertise to one another within a trusted environment. We’ve got everything from school uniforms, instruments, puppies and furniture to holiday villas and jobs. What’s more – it’s free-to-post and we don’t take any commission!

Fundraising for our member schools

We’re so much more than just a marketplace; 25% of advertising revenue from our website and magazine goes directly to support our member schools’ fundraising initiatives, providing an alternative revenue stream with no effort from the school required.

It all adds up and we’re proud to be raising thousands of pounds for our member schools!

Kings of content!

Our blog is jam-packed with the latest insightful and inspiring features on what we (as parents ourselves) believe are the topics you need to survive as a parent! Think education, health, lifestyle – and of course some shopping and fashion!

A word from our founders

We set up School Notices with a very simple desire to help other like-minded parents connect with each other, whilst helping our schools along the way with some much-needed fundraising. We won’t lie – it’s been hard work, but we’re so excited that SN has now become such a wonderful and established community that is growing by the day! We look forward to welcoming you too!
