Groupcall is our chosen provider for our school Text and Email messaging service. 

Groupcall also offers a Parent App called Xpressions. Communication and information such as your child’s attendance can be viewed via the app. By downloading the app you will be helping the school save money on text messages as any messages we send via Xpressions will be free!

About Groupcall Xpressions

View your child’s information on your mobile or desktop

An exciting new service is now available to help make home-school communication easier, more effective and more accessible. Groupcall Xpressions is created, supported and maintained by the award-winning school communication company Groupcall Limited.


Xpressions is completely free of charge to you and can be installed on your mobile phone or tablet. It supports both Apple iOS and Android devices. Alternatively, you can visit from any internet browser on your computer, laptop or mobile device.


If you have children in different schools and those schools also use Groupcall Xpressions, you will be able to view information on multiple children within the same app and same login.


What do I need to do now?

It is vital we have your correct mobile number and email address on our school database as you will need these as well to log into Xpressions. We do not issue you username or passwords. You’ll need to make sure you keep these details up to date in future to maintain access to the service. Please contact the school office if you need to update your contact details.


What happens next?


Once your child has started at Astley Park School you can setup the app. To download the app search for Xpressions in the App Store for your device.


  • Free messages sent by the school delivered directly to your Xpressions
  • Attendance records and absences
  • Notification timeline for all of the above.
