The Cottesloe School provides a vibrant and challenging learning community where students benefit from highly qualified, exceptionally committed staff who recognise the importance of creative and challenging teaching. They aim to be recognised as a school that is on a journey to outstanding. This is reflected in it’s core value statement.
“High achievement for all is our shared responsibility.”
The core infrastructure and networking needed to be upgraded at Cottesloe School. After a recommendation from Bedford School, the team got in touch with ACS for consultation on the project. The solution needed to be competitively priced but, of course, fit for purpose. After completing an audit of the school’s existing environment, we put our recommendations forward.
The ACS Solution
we supplied all of the required server, network switching, and cabling hardware. Then we proceeded with the installation during the summer holidays to minimise disruption. We also supplied the appropriate Microsoft Licensing and allocated a lead engineer to the project. This was to make sure communication was clear between our installation team and the school’s on-site IT team. Our in-house team also completed all data cabling works that were required throughout the project.
Once the project was complete the school were left with an updated network and core infrastructure. As a result, it needed less maintenance, had reduced downtime, and that supported the school’s IT strategy moving forward. With a new, faster, and more robust environment in place, they were able to purchase and deploy new desktops and laptops further down the line.
