Pate’s Grammar School is an Outstanding school located in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. It caters for pupils aged 11 to 18 and is a top performing school. In November 2012, Pate’s was awarded State ‘Secondary School of the Year’ by The Sunday Times in their Good Schools Guide.
The school only purchased SIMS two and a half years ago, but are already advanced users and recently became a partnership school. Geoff Worth, Head of Management Information & Data Infrastructure, has been closely involved with the SIMS setup and now regularly consults with other schools on their SIMS use. Most recently, Pate’s Grammar purchased SIMS Staff Performance, which provides senior leadership teams with the tools to manage, monitor and report on the performance of staff throughout the school.
Geoff is already seeing the benefits of using SIMS Staff Performance, he explains: “It’s absolutely brilliant. The fantastic thing about is that it is all in one place.”
