“They are responsive, knowledgeable and professional, everything we needed to replace our previous support organisation.”

Patrick Taggart – Academy Business Director, The Romero Catholic Academy

“The support we have received from SBS with the administration of our MIS has been invaluable. In fact it is hard to imagine how, as a brand new school, we could have coped with the vital aspects of admissions, student database and timetabling.”
