Felpham Community College

A mixed comprehensive secondary school on England’s south coast in West Sussex, Felpham Community College first opened its doors in 1974. Run by the local authority, Felpham is a high-achieving school, which operates with an international ethos, while encouraging its students to pursue healthy lifestyle choices, community mindedness and financial literacy. These goals are evidenced by the school being identified as an Ofsted Good Provider as well as through numerous awards, including the International Schools Award, Healthy Schools Award, Personal Finance Centre of Excellence, and Gold Award as a UNICEF Rights Respecting School.

Despite these accomplishments, School Business Manager, Phil Rayner, identified the college’s management of educational visits, trips and extracurricular activities as an area of significant operational inefficiency and source of frustration for staff and parents alike. Read on to uncover Fepham’s automation journey, as Rayner discusses the challenges, solutions and results achieved.
