It’s not too late…
Hit the beach and automate your pre-admissions in time for September
Alright; it’s almost time to put your sunglasses on and your feet up. For many of us, it’s been the most challenging school year of our lives.
At Operoo, we’re determined to help UK educators take the break they need this Summer, while ensuring your smoothest September on record. That’s why we’re working throughout July and August to automate pre-admissions and induction processes for schools across the UK.
So, if you’re yet to pull the trigger, it’s not too late. Whether you’re looking to get set-up immediately to facilitate this year’s intake, or build your digital pre-admissions foundations now so that you’re raring to go for 2022, we can help.
The 5 Simple Steps to Success
(and the relaxing Summer break you deserve)
By now, you probably know the story: With Operoo, you can automate your school’s most important pre-admission processes — from data wrangling and communicating with prospective families, to digitally distributing and collecting forms, automatically inducting new students once admitted, and instantly syncing data back into SIMS.
But, for a recap of the six core ways we help, including a case study and on-demand webinar about how Allerton High School digitally transformed the way it manages pre-admissions with Operoo, go here:
Here are the simple steps many of the schools we work with have already taken, to seamlessly digitise and automate student pre-admissions and induction, which you too can follow:
Ok, so this is a little obvious, but this first step really is the biggest. After you rip the bandaid off and take-the-plunge, we’re here to help you every step of the way. It’s simple: fill-in this form, and we’ll start the process today.
Load your Pre-Admissions data
If you haven’t already, load your CTF or ATF files from your LGA and feeder schools into your Pre-Admissions group in SIMS.
Get your SIMS sync going
Our Customer Success Team will help set-up and test Operoo’s custom two-way SIMS integration to ensure a smooth ride. All your pre-admissions students in SIMS will sync to Operoo.
Customise your SIMS pre-admissions template & forms
The reason we’re able to seamlessly sync pre-admissions data back into SIMS is because of our purpose-built SIMS field mapping template. This template includes almost all the questions you’d ever want to ask parents about their child. We’ll help you customise this template to your particular needs.
The questions in the template correspond to data fields in SIMS, which are gathered or verified during the pre-admissions process (such as priority contact, ethnicity and religion). The template and questions contain special mapping, allowing data to sync to the correct fields in SIMS once a pre-admitted student is deemed enroled.
And, with a swathe of best practice eForms pre-built into the system, you’ll be able to get going fast. Better still, our team will help make any modifications necessary.

Almost all of our schools using SIMS are now combining Operoo’s pre-admissions capabilities and unique two-way SIMS sync to seamlessly automate and manage pre-admitted and newly inducted student data.
All you have to do now is relax and let Operoo do the chasing for you. Not only can parents access Operoo and digitally complete pre-admissions forms on any device, they’re also sent automated reminders for missing information. Just sit back and watch the responses roll in.
But wait, there’s more…
