About us

Education Systems Support is an Accredited SIMS Support Unit based in Leicester.

We specialise in the training and support of the SIMS management information system used by most schools and academies.  The business was incorporated in April 2016 by five former members of a Local Authority’s SIMS Support Team who collectively have over 70 years’ experience in supporting schools in the use of SIMS.

Education Systems Support received Capita Accredited status in June 2017, becoming the first SIMS Support Unit to be rated by their schools as 'Excellent' across all 27 areas being surveyed.

This is who we are:


Eddy Johnstone

Eddy has supported schools with SIMS for over 15 years. His specialisms relate to  NOVA T6, the Assessment and Exams modules and he leads on all statutory and local returns of assessment data.


Jeanette Essex

Jeanette specialises in SIMS .net reporting and the core SIMS modules, including the School Census and NOVA T6. She has worked in a SIMS support team for over twenty years.


Manish Vyas

Manish has over 12 years SIMS experience in supporting schools. His specialisms are Behaviour Management, Discover, FMS6 and the technical aspects of the SIMS environment.


David Harris

David has now stepped back from the day-to-day support of SIMS and FMS, but is still very much involved with the team. 

Our core business is to provide training, support and advice on the SIMS Management Information System (MIS), including FMS6.  We support all types of schools, including locally maintained schools, academies, independent schools and free schools, helping them to make the most of the data that they hold.

Our ethos is one of sharing good practice and contributing to school improvement.

We currently support over 100 schools with SIMS and/or FMS6 on a subscription basis, and can provide ad hoc support, training and consultancy to any other school that uses this software.
