Academic Calendar

What our users say

Here are some of the comments we have received from people who use Academic Calendar.


Academic Calendar is fantastic. It allows me to use Outlook as a teacher. It takes full account of holidays and two-week timetables. Timetables can be added centrally rather than every member of staff having to manually enter their timetable. Important school dates and events can be shared to the whole staff or only to those involved in an event. In our school there is a range of users from classroom teachers through to the senior team.

In short Academic Calendar is essential tool for our school.

Robin Barclay Head of E-Learning Chichester High School for Girls


Our staff love Academic Calendar. So often when the IT department rolls out software for the whole school staff ignore it or complain about it but they find Academic Calendar really useful and tell us so.

Fantastic product!!!!

Set up the year. WOW what a difference so much faster – minutes rather that hours!!!!!

Alan Francis, Assistant Head, Royston High School


I’ve been racking my brain for years for the best way to do this, I’m so glad someone has come up with the solution. I’ve used it every day since I got it and I’m sure colleagues would be interested..

Having my lessons showing on my phone was really useful!

Caroline Metcalf, Queen Elizabeth Girls School


It’s a brilliant package and it’s made appointment setting so much simpler.

The way ACal put my timetable into Outlook was a thing of beauty!

Peter Hill, Assistant Headteacher, Yately School


The program is fantastic – I wish I’d known about it earlier. It is so convenient and is saving me lots of time. I will be able to schedule the whole-school calendar on Outlook next academic year as a result of this. Thank you also for all your help – it was second to none.

I couldn’t live without Academic Calendar now. Most certainly you can quote me on the website – I really mean what I said, and this is now the 4th year I’ve been using it. Many thanks once again for a great product that has never let me down (you can quote me on that too if you like).

Mike Richardson, Assistant Headteacher Sarah Bonnell School, Stratford, London


I found Academic Calendar through a Google search for a 2 week timetable outlook add-in. I have been greatly impressed so far – seems like an excellent product that has saved me loads of time setting up my calendar manually (we have a week A and B calendar). All credit to you and your company for developing it!
