A History of Premium School Payments

WisePay was established in 2009 in Hampshire and is a leading supplier of flexible payment, booking and communication services for education.

We are proud to be involved in aiding the growth of organisations, enabling them to reach their full potential using modern technology. Joining Community Brands in 2017 enabled WisePay to grow to another level. Despite our growth, we still lead with the same mentality that we did on day one, that our customers deserve the absolute best we can give. As a result, our development can mainly be attributed to word-of-mouth recommendations across school management circles. As a close-knit team, it is this ethos of looking after our customers that drives us each and every day.
