Mendip Data Systems

Bringing management software to schools ...


About us

Mendip Data Systems are a small company based in the Mendip Hills in Somerset. We specialise in creating management software for schools.

All our programs were originally developed to meet specific school requirements in North Somerset.


The advantage of being a small development operation is that schools don't have to pay for large company overheads when they purchase our products - and users can talk directly to the key people in the company when they contact us. The disadvantage is that sometimes we may not be available, and you may need to leave us a message - or better still, email us - - because we respond to emails quickly and at any time.


All our programs are open source databases using Microsoft Access and SQL Server.

We regularly update our programs to meet the changing needs of schools.

It is also our policy to supply full program code so that schools can customise the program features to suit individual needs.


We currently have five programs available for purchase by schools.
