Top 7 Sixth Form Admissions Processes
Automated in Operoo
Traditional, resource-intensive admissions take hours to complete, sheet after sheet of paper, and a huge team of administrators which all costs money. Then, there’s the time and expense of chasing parents, manual data entry, student induction and more.
But, there is a better way…
With Operoo, you can automate your school’s most important admissions processes: From data wrangling and communicating with incoming families, to collecting forms and on-boarding new students. Remove the frustration, inefficiency and cost associated with your Sixth Form admissions workflow. Discover how to:
1. Establish a single & secure source of truth for important admissions data
Better yet, make that data instantly accessible to all authorised staff anywhere, anytime and on any device.
2. Seamlessly Communicate with Future Students and Parents
Send automated, group and personalised digital communications to applicants and their families – which are triggered based on the timing and nature of the information supplied throughout the admissions process, be they internal or external candidates – via Operoo’s data collection and communication tools.
3. Don’t Chase Another Paper Form Again
Easily create, distribute and collect all admission forms digitally. Zero phone calls or pieces of paper. Collect vital student data quickly and painlessly, including dietary requirements, emergency and medical information. And, set automated reminders to follow-up with non-respondents (at a regular cadence of your choosing) so that you don’t have to manually chase applicants.
4. Automatically Sync Data to SIMS Upon Acceptance
Once students progress from pre-admission status, automatically create a student record in SIMS and sync accross all dietary and medical data upon acceptance – without any manual intervention, data entry or data matching required. Save time, reduce risk and information handling errors.
5. Trigger Student Induction Processes Upon Acceptance / enrolment
Programmatically trigger all student induction and onboarding requests upon acceptance / enrolment – so there’s never a bottleneck in your student registrations – with best practice digital templates for Pupil Premium Applications, Home School Agreements, Free School Meal Forms, School Trip Permissions and everything in-between.
6. Fast Track Responses by Engaging Students Directly
Streamline the on-boarding and induction processes by sending digital forms directly to students. Confirm GCSE results, finalise subject selections, student contracts, club sign-ups and distribute student handbooks long before the new school year, semester or term begins.
7. Manage Bursary Requests
Using Operoo’s process management tools, establish bursary eligibility and collect required information from prospective families. And, once approved, manage the collection of relevant receipts and other information.
Pre-Admissions Case study:
Allerton High School Results Summary
“I am so happy and amazed with our pre-admissions process now. We have used Operoo to completely remove all paper from the new starters parents experience. We send out all forms, digitally through Operoo. Parents love it, responding quickly and accurately from any device or language, and also provide us with student medical information. The data flows straight back into SIMS. Admin staff love it too, and it saves us loads of time, as the system triggers next steps in the workflow, subsequent communications, and does the chasing for us.”
— Gary Loughrey, Progress Data Manager, Allerton High School
