About SDS School Records Management

About us icon
SDS School Records Management (formerly SDS Education) is part of the SDS Group of companies. With offices in Dorset and Hampshire, the SDS Group is one of the UK’s leading private companies in the fields of scanning and archiving.

SDS School Records Management has operated for more than twenty years, and it proudly includes many HMC schools, FTSE100 and other public listed companies, as well as government and local authorities amongst its enormous list of satisfied clients.

Our scanning bureau is set-up to equally facilitate the scanning of bulk paperwork for archiving and database retrieval purposes, and for carefully digitally preserving copies of rare and fragile items for safe-keeping or further digital restoration.

We only build bespoke software solutions for our clients that are designed to  complement our document archiving services. We make available these archives across a range of media, including CD/DVD, USB memory stick, and via secure web sites (using our own servers and Amazon cloud-based solutions).
