IT support services

The cost of ensuring in-house staff have the knowledge & qualifications to keep your school IT fully operational represents a significant impact to your IT budget.

Traditional in-house support strategies are predicated on a reactive support model typically focused on fire-fighting and issue resolution. This can make it challenging to both operate and maintain a fully-functioning IT environment which properly supports your daily operational needs and the full diversity of technologies deployed. Little time is left to pre-empt issues and pro-actively manage your systems.


This is especially true if your school has a largely aging IT estate, or combination of legacy systems and new, recently deployed technologies.


Our managed service options provide the expert support you need with the advantage of predicable budgeting. To read in detail about all the services we can offer you and your school, take a look at our brochure.
