Learning Management System (LMS)

If you think about it, most likely you have learnt something new recently and it made you feel great. That's the power of learning. Some people are lucky enough to work with this every day. While learning is enjoyable, it's not always effortless.  Your school needs hard working and dedicated teachers to inspire pupils to learn.

We can help you with our learning tools. Set tests, create hand in assignments, design individual learning plans and let learning flourish.

Collaboration and Communication

Think about the qualities of great teachers. They seem to know what to say, how to say it, when to say it and who to say it to. Teachers are great communicators, they make it look easy. Fronter has been created to harness the positivity of great communication.

We believe everyone has a voice and everyone has the right to be heard. Fronter opens communication channels between teachers and pupils and between schools, teachers and parents.
