About Us

Netmedia Ltd. owns and operates the Parents Booking. Netmedia has a 25+ year history of producing high-quality online solutions for businesses and organisations of all types. Although our head office is based in Inverness, we’re located across Scotland.

How did Parents Booking start?

Back in 2008 it became clear to us that parents’ evening appointments should be being made online. It may seem a niche idea, but we knew a lot of teachers, and it seemed a problem we could crack using our know-how.

After some market research we discovered there was an appetite for this type of product. We launched the world’s first ‘Parents’ Evening Booking System’ at a time when schools had not quite committed to cloud-based software solutions, but we quickly became part of the furniture at some of the UK’s most prestigious schools.

We recently changed our name from Parents’ Evening Booking System to Parents Booking, reflecting our ever-widening range of #EdTech talents that include event, club, trip and other school ‘bookings’ which can be made with us, online. Today over 1850 schools across four continents trust us to help manage their parent-bookings and video meetings. We are partnered with some of the UK’s biggest and best-loved #EdTech providers and integrate with all of the UK’s major MIS databases.
