About Us

Following discussions between our CEO Tony Wallis and school leaders, it became apparent there was a need for web based software which covered all aspects of school improvement. Schoolaspect was built in 2016, and continues to be developed, with the input of school leaders, Ofsted inspectors and school governors.

Our Purpose

Tony aimed to reduce the workload of school staff, alleviate the stress of completing Word and Excel documents or paper forms, as well as engage all staff in school improvement. He also wanted users to access the modules via an easy-to-use, personalised and interactive dashboard, reducing time navigating software, as well as receiving notifications to avoid deadlines being missed.
