Dale Technology was commissioned in 2002 to design, develop and maintain a bespoke database solution to cover almost all aspects of the school’s administration.

In developing the system, one of the key design briefs was to remove the need for a paper based recording system and to allow administration and teaching staff to easily and quickly locate details on students, staff, classes and timetabling information as well as a host of other details. This was achieved by storing all the information in one single database system, accessible on any computer that staff can log onto within the college.

The system is split into modules relating to the core components of the schools administration, allowing users to easily and quickly access the information they require.

"Dale Technology has developed an exceptional management tool for the College. Timetabling and the reporting system are only two of the features of a system that has revolutionised whole-school administration and management. Working with Dale has been a thoroughly rewarding experience and is due entirely to their expertise and understanding of what a school really needs to function efficiently at every level." - Yvonne Canavan, Alexandra College

One of the latest of many developments has been the introduction of a website, linked directly to the school database, allowing parents to log on and view details of their children’s progress and activities within the school. This gives parents a level of engagement and participation in their children’s academic life that they may not previously have had and ensures that parents are kept up to date on their children’s school life through an electronic newsletter sent out at the end of each school week.
