Simplify school payments
SIMS Agora simplifies the payment collection for school trips, clubs, transport, uniform and other school items with streamlined administration and links to SIMS. Both your school and your parents benefit from an easy, secure process for making those necessary school payments.
Save valuable staff time
Efficiently managing your payments centrally can reduce administrative time and cost spent on payment collection and banking procedures, saving valuable time for your staff.
Secure access to information
Ensuring your information is secure, is our priority. SIMS Agora achieves this by providing additional secure access through integrated two-factor (2FA) authentication.
Customise to suit your school
Parents can use SIMS Agora to provide parental consent for trips online at their own convenience. SIMS Agora is not just for activities that need payment, allow staff to also allocate tickets at concerts and plays that don't have a cost involved.
Both our senior school and our prep school use Agora for parent payments and permissions - from school trips to booking tickets for performances, to asking for expressions of interest so we know whether to go ahead with an event. Being able to ask people to register their interest has particularly helped the PTA with their forward planning too.
