What is the Summer Fast Track Programme?

With SIMS only giving schools the option to renew their contracts for 3 years, many schools have told us they're trying to work out whether they can switch MIS quickly before their SIMS license ends.

Our Summer Fast Track Programme is for schools who have requested the SIMS Break Clause. It's designed to help you make a decision quickly and confidently, and move by 1st September 2022.

1. See Arbor quickly and easily

We’ve created a streamlined process to help your team review Arbor over Spring Term. You’ll be guided by our expert Partnership Manager team to make sure you get all the information you need.

2. Move without double-paying

We’re offering a special Buy Now, Pay Later offer to schools using the programme - meaning you can switch to Arbor before your SIMS license ends and not pay until December 2022.

Please note that Terms and Conditions apply to this programme.
