SCIENCE, ART & DRAMA BLOCKS GET TECHNOLOGY BOOST AT GRAMMAR SCHOOL
School leads the way in the use of new technology Kent-based Network & Cabling Solutions (NCS) Ltd announced today that it had completed the installation of a wireless network system and installed new presentation equipment for The Simon Langton grammar school for boys.
[UKPRwire, Wed Jul 11 2007] The school, with nearly 1000 students and staff is set in the Kent countryside on the outskirts of the medieval city of Canterbury and has recognised the need for the latest communications infrastructure.
It is not only one of the leading schools in the region but also a pioneer in the use of new technology in education.
The new equipment and network has brought what was a traditional grammar school up to date and more in line with its ambitious, ongoing improvement plans. The enhanced system now comprises a Hewlett Packard Managed Network, wireless access and interactive Whiteboards and Projectors in most classrooms. In addition to this there is a large electric drop down screen in the hall, which allows presentations to be projected for all to see.
After winning this latest contract after a strong, competitive tender, NCS has been working with the school for over eighteen months. In that time, the leading networking and cabling specialists has provided advice and support on the school’s infrastructure and presentation equipment.
“The service we get from NCS is good and well delivered. They understand our needs and know the way we operate as a school,” commented Bob Crick, Bursar, at the school.
“They always try to accommodate us and work around our term and schools days to ensure least disruption to school life. They are very reliable, punctilious and work to agreed timescales. It is highly likely that we will be calling on them later in the year to carry out further network improvements,” Bob Crick added.
The Simon Langton School enjoys a high reputation locally and nationally as a school with an enviable academic record consequent upon inspirational teaching and top quality pastoral care.
