Richard Marchant is Deputy Head Teacher at the school, responsible for CPD, assessment, and development and learning. One of his recent tasks has been to find and implement a new MIS. “Staff were unable to do their jobs to their maximum potential with the solution we had previously,” says Richard, “effective reporting and personalising learning was just not possible.”
Richard set out in search of an MIS that was fit for purpose for the school. He carried out research including reading the forums on EduGeek.net, a British-based online peer support community and information portal for IT professionals. There he found positive feedback for iSAMS and decided to get in touch with the iSAMS team straight away.
Within weeks a senior member of the iSAMS team went to visit Richard in Kuwait to give a presentation and provide a demo package for the staff to trial. Following this, in May 2012 the agreement with iSAMS was signed. “We haven’t looked back since,” says Richard.
