Double First Ltd is pleased to announce its attendance at all the main conferences being held for independent and fee paying schools across the UK and overseas.

This will provide an excellent opportunity for numerous schools to gain a hands-on feel of our Engage software, and see how much Engage can simplify and better their school operation as an effective school management system.



First up is the IAPS (Independent Association of Prep Schools) conference which this year will be at the Hotel de France in Jersey from 23 to 25 September. This is an excellent conference which Double First has attended for many consecutive years.

Second, Double First is excited to be attending the HMC (Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference) in Liverpool from 5 to 8 October.

“We usually find that Headmasters and Headmistresses use conferences like this as an opportunity to maintain relationships with their major suppliers, so we’re particularly looking forward to this event,” said Simon Jones, Group Marketing Manager.

“Our schools depend on us for support and we must be able to respond even if the offices
are closed – du Pré Connect allows us to keep working, regardless, with complete
Remote Working Transparency.”


In November, the Double First team will be attending the ISA Autumn Study Conference in Warwick (13 to 14 November), the GSA conference in Harrogate (16 to 18 November) and the AMDIS conference in Leicester (23 to 24 November).

Simon explained, “The next few weeks are going to be very, very busy for us, not just as we attend these events but also as we manage the incoming queries from schools wanting to move to a system designed for the 21st century and looking and behaving
as a modern program is expected.”

Improving Existing Systems

Now that many schools already have a school management system of sorts, Double First has started receiving telephone calls from increasing numbers of schools that feel their existing system doesn’t quite meet the needs of everyone in the school.

“The conferences we’re attending will be perfect for school delegates to see all the improvements we’ve made in the last 12 months. We’re very excited about them all, especially the Portal which gives parents a real view of their child’s progress while promoting a forward looking school environment,” said Simon.
