Year 7 Admissions+: Unlocking Efficiency and Accuracy with Reliable Information at Your Fingertips

Every year, schools receive a bundle of documents with details about their Year 7 cohort. However, anyone who works in school will tell you that these documents often lack accurate and/or essential information. These could include an ATF, an Excel file, or a cardboard folder, the fact remains: there will be some critical piece of the jigsaw missing.

We know that ensuring a smooth transition is something that schools are really thoughtful about and getting the right support structures in place to aid pupils in transition is vital.

Accurate information is key!

From listening to schools, we know that many still handle admission through paper application forms, or basic online forms like Google Forms, which lack integration with the school’s Management Information System (MIS). We believe there is a better way to streamline these processes without taking away the autonomy schools and MATS want to manage their process in their house style and to their timescale.

Enter Admissions+, our solution that simplifies this process. Effortlessly upload the student list, and a welcome message is sent to parents, urging them to log in and complete your fully customisable form. This ensures the collection of specific information, including required agreements and policies.

Throughout this process, you can send individual, or group messages, book 1 to 1 meetings, and organise your Transition Days. Seamless communication with parents and carers is one of the outstanding benefits of the platform. The information you’ve collected can then be used to plan for the next academic year, with the added convenience of being able to track your overall progress through our easy-to-understand tables and charts. Our Sorting Hat will even arrange students into ‘form’ groups taking into account students who need to be kept apart or in the same group whilst keeping these balanced groups.

Once the forms are completed, you can upload them directly into your MIS in one click, eliminating the need for any manual data entry. Wow!

We know we will save you time and streamline your processes but a recent Case Study highlighted the cost savings Admissions+ also offers.
