A secure digital platform that lets extended family members follow a pupil’s journey through their school years

Social networks are big business in the networked world that we live in today. Acknowledge Xc’s new online digital platform harnesses the power of existing school websites, enabling a pupil’s family members to follow their years at school.

Having collaborated with top schools including Eton, Berkhamstead, Wellington College, Stowe School and Steiner Schools, Acknowledge is looking for investment to complete the build of its internet-based platform.

As the platform is in the later stages of development, the company has already had a significant amount of collaborative input from schools and parents.

Pupils jointly create profiles with their school, publishing videos, pictures and events relating to academic achievements and extra curriculum interests that could otherwise go unnoticed. Access is granted to extended family using secure methods, allowing these members to log in, view and even comment on a pupil’s activity.

An additional feature of this platform is that each profile can be used to supplement a pupil’s academic CV and enhance applications for different schools. It acts as proof of past commitments and extra curricular activities and can support personal statements.

The key market for Acknowledge is the independent schools sector in the UK which has around 500,000 pupils in 1200 schools. The company also has plans for expansion into overseas markets, and has estimated this market to contain around 3 million pupils – a figure which looks set to double by 2022.

A revenue share scheme is in place to reward schools with a charitable donation and a referral fee is in place to reward those who help the model grow quickly. The first 10 founder schools will also receive more rewards.
