On the trial day in June, staff used the web-based system across 24 PCs to enrol students, take fees and photos, and produce ID cards.

Jeremy Harrison, head of information services at the college, said: "The new enrolment process was very slick and smooth, offering students a first class administrative service and introduction to the college. The new ebs4 software proved to be both reliable and effective and paying by direct debit was simpler than ever."

The partnership means the schools will be able to access Shireland's learning interface, which features teacher-created content and pedagogical training, as well as online forums to develop best practice in education.

Sir Mark Grundy, head teacher of Shireland Language College said: "Our experience is that if something isn't working well in school then you are not going to find the solution inside the school. You need to look outside. The challenge with solutions is how to find them, fetch and apply them."

The data is restricted to authorised school staff members only.

A representative from the London Borough of Lambeth said: "We are continually looking at ways to improve racist incident and bullying monitoring and being able to report and monitor incidents in real-time will play a key role in helping us to tackle and reduce bullying in schools."
