Since taking over many Schools in the Dorset area from Local Authorities, we have been able to implement huge savings on ICT support and services. Reducing costs of Broadband and content filtering has been our number one aim, providing high speed connections and dare we say it, the best content filtering platform available.

We’ll also work with you to ensure the right level of network and front-line support is provided so that your teachers and ICT department have constant access to a high level of expertise for both day to day and larger infrastructure project assistance and management.
Identifying the best technology for your classrooms is crucial for facilitating the achievement of greater teaching and learning objectives. From student tablets to interactive screens, we are on hand to advise and help you determine which solutions will work best in your teaching environment, with leasing options available and also a large selection of refurbished equipment, especially designed for the education market, saving thousands of pounds in hardware costs.

Protecting your students and staffs data
IT security solutions and content blocking
In this day and age, it's more important than ever to keep the data of your children, students or staff safe and to monitor the content they are viewing within school grounds.
We have moved several Dorset-based schools away from their previous filtering solutions provided by SWGfL as well as taking over their legacy internet connectivity and infrastructure. Along with managing to save them a significant amount of money, the filtering solution is much more granular allowing staff/students to bring their own devices into the school safely without having to worry about inappropriate content slipping through the net under any circumstances.
Our filtering solutions adhere to all current government guidelines, such as the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) list, Counter-Terrorism Internet Referral Unit (CTIRU) as well as Child Abuse Images and Content (CAIC) lists. Although legally; the UK's 'Keeping Children Safe in Education' guidelines state "appropriateness is down to individual establishments", we take a belt-and-braces approach to filtering, enforcing things like strict YouTube 'Kids Mode' and forcing Google SafeSearch on all devices.
