Pressure on schools and colleges to perform is increasing, and the effective use of technology is a fundamental benchmark for performance. The challenge schools face is to integrate technology effectively into the curriculum whilst battling with budgets and endless choice.

We can help you get the tools you need to drive engagement in the classroom – from the latest tablets to cutting edge audio visual solutions.

We understand that having access to a robust and speedy infrastructure is always top priority for any network and we are here to help.

Network and Wireless Solutions

Having a robust and secure wireless network is essential to provide flexibility and allow network access to areas of your school site that may not otherwise be accessible. We can provide a robust and fully managed wireless solution tailored to your school’s requirements.

Unhappy with your current wireless network?
The first step is to have a wireless survey conducted. Many companies charge for this, however we will conduct this survey free of charge.

Rent-a-Techi

We can provide a professionally trained ICT Service engineer to be onsite on a scheduled or one-off basis to help support schools that do not have permanent, onsite technical support or just to work alongside your existing ICT support team to help provide extra support for their existing IT function. We call this service “Rent-a-Techi”.

As well as helping maintain your network they will advise on strategic plans for ICT development in your establishment.

Our engineers can carry out on the job training, if working beside your technicians, enabling a more efficient and effective support team.

Backed by support from our partners, this service can be completely tailored to meet the needs of your School. Flexibility is key, this service is planned and agreed with you and your school, to ensure it meets not only your current needs, but those you will have in the future.
