About Arbor MIS

Arbor MIS helps schools of all sizes work better, with intuitive tools designed to make a difference.

Be ready for whatever tomorrow brings

As we enter an Autumn Term with lots of new regulations and routines, having the right systems in place to support you and your staff is more important than ever.

Whatever this new year brings, you need adaptable, cloud-based systems in place to support you no matter how (and from where) you need to run your school.

Arbor MIS gives schools the tools they need to work better today and be ready for tomorrow. Free staff from busywork, work more collaboratively, and stay connected on the cloud – so your whole team has a shared view of what’s going on, even if you’re not together. With over 1,200 primary, secondary and special schools, Arbor is the UK’s fastest-growing MIS community today.
