Lourdes IT completed their latest project over the Easter holidays, working with Alcester Academy to migrate to a new network.
The project, led by our project team leader Dan Blunt – involved rebuilding servers, deploying a new image, integration with both Google Workspace and Office365 solutions and Intune Device Management for school laptops.
The project was included within Alcester’s existing SLA with Lourdes IT – where we deliver 3 days onsite support each week, and access for staff and students to our help desk all year. We also work with their existing IT support colleague.
Over the Easter holiday 7 members of the Lourdes IT Team worked to rebuild every device, and the servers and complete testing which has resulted in a smooth start back to the term for the staff and students at Alcester, and a move away from County Council services.
Headteacher of the Outstanding rated Secondary school, Sarah Mellors has conveyed the school community’s happiness with the project, including commenting on how we were able to allow key staff to continue their work, and Easter education sessions to continue.
Lourdes IT, who support many schools in Warwickshire and Worcestershire, have completed many similar projects to help schools streamline their IT systems, support cloud adoption and reduce their IT costs.
Within the SLAs for schools who have support onsite for 3 or more days a week, all project work is included – to help schools achieve their goals as cost effectively as possible.
Lourdes IT have worked with Alcester Academy for 2 years now, and the relationship between the school and our team is extremely strong, with a shared ethos on achieving the best for pupils and staff with everything we do.
