Security and reliability safeguards

At SchoolBooking we know that our customers rely on us as an important part of their day to day activities.

We take the responsibility of security and reliability of our service, systems and customer’s data seriously.

Whilst logged into SchoolBooking we protect the data sent back and forth between our servers and your web browser from eavesdroppers with 128-bit SSL encryption. The SchoolBooking service is located in a state-of-the-art datacentre.

Listed below are just some of the reasons that makes our service super secure and reliable:


The data centre access is limited to security-cleared personnel only, controlled by CCTV and monitored access control systems. Security guards are on duty 24 hours a day 7 days a week, 365 days a year.


The SchoolBooking service application including your data sits behind a monitored firewall.

Power Loss Protection

The data centre uses uninterruptible power supplies. In the case of a power cut, the power supply is switched with absolutely no interruption to a diesel generator capable of running our service for 30 days.

Resilience/ Performance

Using a centralised storage area network (SAN) and automatic load-balancing server technology, our service is automatically provided the resources needed to operate efficiently and will automatically distribute workloads across physical machines to give best performance. This also ensures if there is a physical server problem, our service will continue to operate by using another physical server with no interruption to our customers.


The SchoolBooking service is backed up every two hours, a full backup of all data is stored offsite every evening and customers can also make snapshot backups of their own individual site at any time.


In addition to our sophisticated monitoring systems, the data centre has a team of expert engineers monitoring the data, ensuring that potential issues are prevented before they can even happen.
