Longcroft School Moodle with Sims Integration and Extra Support

Moodle can be difficult for busy schools to manage - but with Webanywhere’s SIMS integration and ongoing support, it doesn’t have to be!

The School

Longcroft School and Sixth Form College is a community secondary school situated in Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, England. Webanywhere have hosted their Moodle since 2010.


The Problem

Longcroft school staff were unsure of how to manage Moodle and make the most out of its features. Due to some technical issues, they were looking for support in how to use and manage the platform. They also wanted a redesign, in order to make it easier for students to navigate.


The Solution

Webanywhere provided Longcroft with a Moodle platform with SIMS integration. This allowed automated user management, off-site access to SIMS data, reporting in real-time to parents and writeback of assessment data to SIMS, which overall made the platform much easier to keep up to date and control. Webanywhere also provide ongoing support to customers, meaning that any issues or questions Longcroft may have had would be quickly resolved by an experienced member of the team.

Success Story

The new Longcroft Sports Academy was visited by World Thai Boxing champion Rachael MacKenzie in October. Connecting with the Sky Sports ‘Living for Sport’ project, the students at Longcroft were treated to an exciting afternoon of boxing and hearing about life as a world class athlete. The day was a great success, and the school were able to let the students know all about it through Moodle.
