It is more important than ever to raise your school’s profile as parents increasingly compare schools in-depth to secure the best education for their child. Naturally, you want to showcase the high-quality education and activities that set your school apart. SIMS helps by revealing which marketing activities parents respond to most and by communicating effectively with prospective families and pupils.
Target your approach
There are many ways a school can attract new pupils, but it is important to focus on the approaches that have the greatest impact. With SIMS you can clearly see which methods result in parents choosing your school, so you know you are putting energy into the activities that get results.
Plan budgets efficiently
Parents may register their interest months or years before their child is due to start school. With SIMS Registration & Admissions that information can be stored, helping you to forecast future pupil numbers and putting you in control of budget planning, with an accurate projection of future revenue.
Support the needs of head teachers, bursars and governors by providing accurate data detailing future pupil numbers, types of pupils (boarders or day) and when they are due to start at school.
Deliver a consistent message
Communicating consistently and professionally with parents is crucial for making a positive first impression. SIMS Registration & Admissions makes this simple through generating and storing templates for letters, emails and other communications, each with your school’s branding.
Save time and avoid missed opportunities by using SIMS to manage the entire pupil recruitment process – from initial enquiry right through to the child joining your school. Arrange all school visits and correspondence using the data held in SIMS. You can even keep parents up to date automatically at different stages via text and email with SIMS InTouch.
