Management Information System (MIS) for schools
Over 5,000 schools use Arbor, the UK’s most popular cloud MIS
We believe that schools work best when all staff have access to a single MIS. Arbor includes the tools all your staff need - whatever their role, and whatever your school phase.
At the heart of our MIS is a commitment to make a measurable difference to the way your school works. 92% of our users say Arbor has transformed the way they work for the better.
We have a track record of building and launching features that schools and MATs love. From Attendance to Exams, Payments to Comms, Seating Plans to Assessments - we’re the top-rated multi-phase MIS across functionality, service and quality of support.
Our School MIS and MAT MIS work seamlessly together, giving you a single ecosystem for your trust, and making it easy to work together as one organisation.
See why over 5,000 schools and 400 MATs have moved to Arbor
“Arbor has improved the statistics that we can get, regarding behaviour and attendance, to allow senior leadership teams to make better informed decisions to drive improvement. With Arbor, the right information is in the right place at the right time. E.g. Detentions are automated to send a report to go to form tutors two minutes before afternoon registration session. This has helped improve students’ behaviour.”
“When the LEO Academy Trust was looking to move to a cloud based MIS, financial savings and value for money was hugely important. Having moved to Arbor, we have saved money on third party products which we no longer require as they are included in the core functionality of Arbor.”
“United Learning are excited to realise the benefits that a modern cloud-based MIS such as Arbor will bring to our schools – resilience, mobility, security and the reduced costs of a single, highly capable tool.”
“Arbor has been a really great exercise in helping us step back and question the way we were doing things, and asking ourselves: ‘Why do we do that?’ and ‘Can we do things a different way?’ For example, parents’ evenings used to be this massive deal, but with Arbor, it’s easy. Another example is exams; Arbor gave us an opportunity to question how we were running exams at Pool and see if there was a better way.”
“I just wanted to say how impressed I have been with Arbor during the Covid-19 crisis. What you guys have implemented has made my job so much easier and less stressful. […] Well done #TeamArbor!”
“We wouldn’t have known what to do without Arbor this week, it’s been an absolute godsend being able to access school info from the Group and all the other inbuilt reports we can access, as well as accessing remotely!”
“Arbor has transformed the way the school works by having everything in one place. It’s easy and intuitive to use, allowing us to focus on what matters most in the school, the students.”
“Working with Arbor is a pleasure in every way. It is an exceptional tool, but the people make the real difference with their friendly but professional manner, clear knowledge of the system, and most of all, a strong passion and desire for delivering the desired outcomes and improving features and functionality. They listen and act. We cannot endorse Arbor enough”
“We genuinely love the Arbor system and the team behind it who seem to just want the whole system to succeed at our school […] I would just like to say a huge thank you to yourself and your team, who really have looked after us and who have wholeheartedly helped us confirm that the decision to change to Arbor was the right one”
“Clear, saves us time, available sooner than DfE MAT data, and is extremely well presented, making reporting to Trustees very straightforward”
“We knew we wanted to work with a company that would be responsive and reactive to our needs as a rapidly growing Trust. Arbor have delivered this; regular calls have really helped ongoing training and guidance and dealt with any issues on a weekly basis which, quite frankly, has been a lifesaver to all our schools and support team”
“Arbor’s simple interface is easy to use, and we love the MAT reporting tool – the ability to see MAT data in one place without having to contact all schools individually has saved us so much time!”
“Simple, clear and easy to understand, with an obvious colour system that explains pages of data in a digestible snapshot”
“If you’re looking for an MIS which does everything, there’s no other option really. When we met Arbor, you could just tell this was a different way of doing things. There was a degree of ambition that matched what we wanted to do for our school”
“I like the simplicity of the reports. You can identify areas of need quickly and continue strategically leading instead of spending hours analysing the data. Arbor does the job for you”
