Who we are

We are a team of school ICT technicians based in Redditch. We have various level of experience but we all share a common idea that ICT can make a real difference for everyone in a school, whatever their role.

We believe in a proactive nature to our ICT support, and resolutions that are a long term fix - not a short term bodge. We work with SMT and all staff to get the right solution.As well as our dedicated team, working in a school ourselves we are supported and line managed by staff with extensive ICT knowledge and people management skills, we also have friendly admin and finance staff who assist us.

We are not a business. We are a school, helping schools.
