Derby IT specialist enables school pupils to benefit from latest education technology thanks to major IT project

Derby based IT network specialist Nowcomm has enabled students at Robert Clack School of Science in Dagenham to use the latest education technology when the school reopens thanks to a major IT project.

The project, which involved the creation and delivery of a Local Area Network (LAN) at the academy's new site on Royal Anglian Way in Dagenham, also saw Nowcomm link the network to the school’s existing IT infrastructure at its locations in Gosfield Road and Green Lane using a Wide Area Network (WAN).

To ensure that teaching staff and students can access the network throughout the site and while on the move, the Nowcomm team also mapped and configured over 60 WiFi access points.

This will allow the implementation of a range of technology driven teaching tools, from interactive, web-connected whiteboards to smart devices across a range of classrooms and teaching spaces.

Nowcomm will provide ongoing network maintenance and support to the school in order to ensure continuity of service for staff and students alike.

Daniel Emerton, Senior IT Technician at Robert Clack, said:

"Nowcomm presented a comprehensive plan for our school’s IT infrastructure, which would enable 21st century teaching and learning across the entire estate, including the new Lymington Fields site.

“We aim to provide an outstanding holistic education that will ensure the young people of the Robert Clack School community are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attributes necessary to fulfil their potential and make a valuable contribution to society. A key part of this is ensuring they benefit from the latest in education technology and thanks to the infrastructure delivered by the Nowcomm team we are in a place to do this across all of our sites."


Richard Mcloughlin, CEO of Nowcomm, said:

"Interactive teaching tools, collaboration platforms and overall communication plays a vital role in modern education, and so we were delighted to work with Robert Clack to place this at the heart of their IT infrastructure.

“By ensuring robust and intelligent connectivity throughout the school and strong network infrastructure, the team at Robert Clack will be able to continue providing an immersive and engaging education to students, using the latest teaching aids and technology available."
