Success Stories Lordswood Boys' School

Millgate worked with Kier Group to provide the technical infrastructure for a new state-of-the-art school building.

The Challenge

After making rapid academic progress in a short space of time, Lordswood Boys’ School needed a modern environment that could further drive pupil progress. The school’s location means it plays a pivotal role in enabling social mobility, and therefore it needed to provide its pupils with high-quality facilities and equipment that maximised their learning potential.

After Lordswood Boys School was selected for the Priority School Building Programme, Millgate was assigned to support the creation of technology infrastructure for a new 5,790m2 facility, spread over three-storeys with 34 classrooms, a main hall, sports hall, library resource centre, special educational needs provision and ancillary teaching facilities.

The Solution

Millgate started by installing the telecoms and networking infrastructure for the new building. Neil, one of Millgate’s telecoms specialists, helped lead the project, which included the coordination of multiple suppliers to deliver VoIP telephony and unified comms for the school, as well as mobile devices and plans. Neil’s constant calmness and extensive specialist knowledge helped ensure the success of the work.

Next, Millgate worked with Kier and Lordswood Boys’ School to install a new server, including setup and configuration of the new system as well as ongoing remote support.

If there were 3 words I’d use to describe everyone I’ve dealt with at Millgate, they would be: calm, reliable and efficient.

The Results

Millgate installed both the telephony infrastructure and the new server seamlessly, enabling operations at the school to be as modern as its new building. Staff and pupils moved in at the start of 2020, and the new site gives them the space to grow year-on-year to teach 750 students.

The new server and ongoing remote support will ensure the school’s technology can scale with their growth, allowing staff to focus on delivering the very best education to pupils throughout their journey at Lordswood.
