Here is a getting started guide for setting up a SIMS Parent account.

How to register?

Before beginning the registration processes, you will need the following:

  • Your unique registration email. Your school will send to you a registration email that contains a registration link and an invitation code. This email will be sent from Capita SIMS ( If you cannot find this email, please check your junk mail and ensure it has not been marked as SPAM.
  • The date of birth of one of your children who attends the school.
  • A Microsoft (including Office 365), Google, Apple, Facebook, Twitter or SIMS ID account. You can use an existing account (e.g. a Hotmail account) or create a new one online - they are free, easy to set up and you can use any valid email address and password.

Getting Started

  1. Open the email and click the button or copy and paste the website URL as instructed. A new internet browser window will open and you will be asked to log in.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Only users with an existing SIMS ID account can enter their details in the Username and Password fields that are displayed. There is no facility for users to create a SIMS ID account as part of account registration.

    • If you were able to use the button in the email you received, this field will be populated automatically.

  4. Click the Register button to continue.
  5. Enter the Date of birth of one of your children attending the school in the format dd/mm/yyyy (e.g. 12/06/2011) and click the Verify button.
