As we enter our fifteenth year, providing websites for schools, we thought it was time for a name change.
On February 1, 2023, we became known as Updat-ed.
The name sponsor-ed was aligned to our original mission of providing schools with free websites, funded by running ethical ads (from sponsors – hence the name) that also provided a revenue stream back to the school.
It was a bold idea launched in the very early days of digital advertising. Overtime, as the powerhouses of Google and Facebook dominated the ad market, we needed to reinvent ourselves into a more traditional subscription model.
The move to Updat-ed reflects more about what we do – supporting you to keep parents updated. The name Updat-ed, also retains part of our branding history by incorporating the ‘ed’ component.
Updat-ed is not entirely new to us. Our free app, introduced 10 years ago, has been called Updat-ed since inception. We liked the name so much that it now represents the entire entity.
So, how do you pronounce Updat-ed.
Try this, say ‘Upday’ ‘Ted’, with the emphasis on the ‘ed’.
We hope you like the new name and our snappier looking logo.
The name is only one of the changes for 2023. We have more web themes coming, along with many new website features.
2023's going to big for Updat-ed.

The new invoices will reflect our new name and logo. Banking details remain exactly the same, as Updat-ed is a wholly owned subsidiary of The sponsor-ed Group, not a separate company.
