Education technology company Elastik has today announced that it has acquired UK school data technology company SixIntoSeven, securing Elastik’s position in the UK market with more than 1,000 schools using its products and services around the world.
Finalist in the 2023 BETT Awards in the Assessment, Planning and Progress Monitoring category, Elastik Learning is an established EdTech company with a base of more than 600 schools and thousands of students in Australia. Having secured in excess of £3m in funding, Elastik launched in the UK in 2021.
CEO and Founder of Elastik, Jeremy Waters said of the acquisition
“We are delighted to be able to come together with SixintoSeven and are excited for our future together. We share the same values, believing that no child should be left behind and we are all focused on ensuring that we give children the best possible start to their secondary education. We are confident that with our combined experience and expertise we will be able to leverage the insights we have from huge volumes of student data, in order to support every single student and teacher better”.
SixintoSeven is the market leader in the transfer of pupil information between primary and secondary schools with over 600 schools including school groups, MATs and LEAs.
Founder of SixintoSeven, Brendan Nel said “we have been working hard over several years to promote greater collaboration between primary and secondary schools as pupils move from Year 6 into Year 7. We achieve that by sharing pastoral and academic information in a highly secure and compliant way. We are hugely excited to be joining the Elastik team and are looking forward to taking our products and services to the next level with their support”.
Brendan Nel will join Elastik as Product Director and will continue to work on supporting SixIntoSeven schools alongside a wider role within Elastik.
In addition to the acquisition, Elastik Learning has also recently announced the recruitment of a new senior team based in the UK including Andrew Blackie as Chief Commercial Officer and Louise Mayor as Chief Marketing Officer. Both Andrew and Louise have experience in the UK EdTech market having been part of the team leading the development of Sparx Learning from just ten schools in Devon to a leading EdTech with over 2,000 schools in the UK.
