Shkolo joins Juniper Education to provide a comprehensive solution for managing modern education establishments and improving learning outcomes.


Juniper Education is excited to announce its latest acquisition of market-leading EdTech company Shkolo, Bulgaria’s no.1 provider of management information systems (MIS), already serving over 1700 education establishments.

Having already made 13 acquisitions since its inception in 2019, Juniper Education boasts a growing customer portfolio that includes over 14,000 schools and trusts, providing extensive education solutions for classrooms, the back office, staff development and engaging parents.

On this latest acquisition, Chris Scarth, CEO of Juniper Education, said, “Shkolo is a crucial addition to Juniper’s already comprehensive offering of market-leading software and services for primary and secondary education. With a 75% share and a very loyal customer base, the acquisition of Shkolo represents the first international expansion for Juniper Education and is an exciting step in our ongoing growth plans,”

Chris continued, “Shkolo’s commitment to innovation, whilst also delivering exceptional customer service, aligns perfectly with our vision of ‘We look after you, so that you can look after our children.”

Lyubomir Vanyov, CEO of Shkolo, said, “We’re delighted to be joining Juniper. Our mission to help school teachers and leaders spend more time focused on the children, and less on administration fits perfectly with what Juniper delivers in the UK. We look forward to benefiting from Juniper’s additional resources and expertise to help support more teachers, leaders, and students through the use of our innovative platform.”

Simon Hitchcock, Managing Partner at Horizon Capital, an investor in Juniper Education, said, “We are thrilled to assist Juniper in incorporating Shkolo into its portfolio, enabling Juniper to broaden its reach and commitment to elevating educational standards by providing schools with an unparalleled array of innovative solutions.”

Existing customers of both organisations will continue to receive the same market-leading products and services they currently benefit from.  Over time, our team will explore additional opportunities to leverage the full spectrum of our product portfolio for the collective benefit of all our customers.
