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.

"They are always professional and approachable and explain things so that the not-so-techy layman can understand." Response to our client survey, 2017

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.
