SIMS was the first MIS for schools and was initially developed by Philip Neal, a teacher at Lea Manor High School, 1982 to 1983. His LEA (Bedfordshire County Council) further developed the product, which began being used by other schools in 1984. In 1988, a commercial company, SIMS Ltd, was founded to further develop SIMS.
