We understand that you need to collect supplementary information from your parents for those that have been allocated a place at your school by the Local Authority. We also understand that if you can avoid data entering tasks you will, and if you can increase your engagement with parents from the outset, that's a bonus! All of this data can then be passed into your MIS/SIS system with ease making induction as streamlined as possible.
HEIapply is empowering local authority controlled Schools worldwide to be better at streamlining intake and induction processes. Our intuitive online system is designed to complement and enhance your processes, enabling the ultimate applicant journey.

The Challenge


Local Authority Controlled Schools are home to pupils from across neighbouring areas and catchments. We know that means hundreds of applications from local parents trying to secure a place.

Parents apply to Local Authority Controlled Schools for the education of their child by ranking five schools. The competition for a place at the top ranked school leads to oversubscribed classes and waiting lists.


As if this wasn’t complex enough, the admissions process is intricate and varied often requiring medical and ALS information from the beginning.

With high levels of manual effort involved, multiple levels of entry and lower levels of customer engagement, Schools are at risk of falling short on delivering the applicant journey the modern day applicant expects.

Our Solution

We recognise the need for Schools to operate efficiently, effectively and competitively. We know that speed and cost efficiency are hugely important.

That’s why we work with you to ensure that we have all the vital ingredients to create your perfect admissions solution at a budget that works for you.

"I love the feature that automatically sends an email alert to the applicant’s parents once their child’s application has been reviewed and checked for completeness. This saves me from having to update each parent manually via email or phone."
