Who we work with



ASCL is the only professional association and trade union in Britain to speak exclusively for secondary school and college leaders. Working with ASCL helps us to further understand what school leaders want from our software and services and to share best practice with its members.



We work alongside the EOA, an independent, non-union organisation, which supports the professional development of training services for exam office staff in schools. Working together, we help to target, develop and provide appropriate ICT training to meet future needs.



Partnering with NASBM, the UK’s leading association exclusively representing the school business management profession, enables us to work closely with business managers and bursars and to develop our software accordingly.

SIMS Partnership Schools' Programme

The SIMS Partnership Schools’ Programme has been running for 12 years.

Our partnership schools have years of experience in making the most of SIMS and have used SIMS to achieve inspiring results within their school. Our partnership schools work to share their SIMS expertise with others in a variety of ways such as holding SIMS in Action events and featuring in our case studies.

As a partnership school, you will be offered consultancy, training, access to new software and be invited to our annual Partnership Schools’ conference in return for your commitment. In addition, there will be opportunities to engage with different Capita departments giving you a voice within the business. If you’re interested in becoming a partnership school or you would be keen to learn from them, get in touch with our Partnership Schools Manager Lia Worthington-Ellis.

Charities we work with


We’re proud to be supporting SHINE, a charity dedicated to improving outcomes for disadvantaged children and helping every child to have the education they deserve.

The Let Teachers SHINE competition encourages teachers to think of new and innovative ways for disadvantaged children to learn, helping them to make a difference to a child’s life. We believe that teachers are the key to unlocking the power of learning in children and Let Teachers SHINE provides an opportunity for inspirational teachers to improve the lives of young people.
