Logging into Parent App - for parents who registered BEFORE August 2021

Logging into SIMS Parent for parents who registered BEFORE August 2021

Simply select the account which you used when you registered, sign in with your own account details and this will log you into your account. 

Please note the College is unable to reset any passwords, as the system uses authentication with your own account. 

The College is now unable to revoke access, as an element stays behind in the background table for 40 days and therefore won’t allow you to re-register.  Please e-mail and we can advise which of your accounts you used to register.

Logging into SIMS Parent for parents who registered AFTER August 2021

Either use the app on a smartphone or navigate to:

Click on the “SIMS” icon:

Enter your e-mail address as the username and the password you set when you registered to login.
