Our story

Hi, I’m Ross, a teacher at heart and a problem-solver by nature.

Are you battling numerous systems and silos in school? I’ve been there, done that. That’s why I wanted to see change.

We started by revolutionising music department management, becoming market leaders within 2 years. Our secret? Listen to teachers, execute with intelligence, and add a dash of innovation.

Building on the success of Practice Pal Music, we expanded by building Involve. From co-curricular activities to learning support, Involve covers it all. Involve tackles all the complexities often overlooked by larger software providers.

Our goal for 2024? Simple. Imagine just needing one platform to pair with your MIS. That’s the future of streamlined school management.
