Chatsworth Schools acquired the school in January 2023 and conducted an IT audit as part of their overall effectiveness survey. Following the IT audit they asked ICTn to survey the school and provide recommendations. ICTn completed an exhaustive survey which looked at wired and wireless connectivity, switches, broadband, filtering, inter-building links, on-site storage, phone systems, security, end user devices. The survey showed that staff were struggling with ineffective and in-secure IT equipment with poor reliability. The use of IT in the classroom was limited and much of the IT was provided as a standalone lesson in the small computer suite. The four main buildings were effectively all running separate networks or had no network provision. ICTn provided an extensive design document recommending a major upgrade of the IT infrastructure including improved Wi-Fi, a fibre backbone standardised switch provision plus security and backup improvements.
