About us

At Arbor, we’re on a mission to transform the way schools work for the better.

You’ve probably seen the headlines. Heavy workloads, constant change, admin pressure on teachers and staff at every level… sometimes it feels like this is just part and parcel of school life today. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

At Arbor, we passionately believe that there’s a better way to work. And it starts by giving everyone the right tools and technology for the job. Over 3,000 schools and trusts use our products to work more collaboratively, free staff from busywork, and drive their schools forward.

Ultimately, we’re here to help make our schools and trusts stress a little less, and focus on what matters most - improving the lives of teachers and outcomes of students everywhere.
