“The planner is an incredibly useful resource and an invaluable link between home & school, parents are fully informed regarding their child’s homework. My Y6 class have become far more organised & independent since introducing the planners, the transition to Y7 won’t seem like such a daunting leap for them.” Kerry Boam, Year 6 Teacher, Alumwell Junior School

School Magazines




Boomerang has pioneered the development of an easy-to-use online school newspaper/magazine creation system for students or staff to use. This can produce either digital or printed copies for distribution to your school community. Part of this system includes a low-cost centralised print service. “We absolutely love our magazines, a great way to show off all we have achieved in school over the year and very affordable - and popular with parents and pupils alike! It was so easy and simple to make them using Boomerang’s software and they held our hand every step of the way. We definitely recommend using Boomerang.” Helen Barden, Head Teacher, Talavera Junior School, Hampshire

“Using the software was fantastic; the students had ownership over their designs and loved using the images that had been provided. Mostly, the students loved handing out a real magazine to their peers. It looked so professional and they were so proud of themselves!” Claire Chatterton, English Teacher, Aldworth Science College
