Brambletye School

Brambletye School is a co-educational independent day and boarding school for pupils between the ages of 2 and 13. Pupils are prepared for Common Entrance or Scholarship Examinations to a wide range of senior schools.

“The IT within our school was previously handled by one of our IT teachers” comments Nick Hollamby, Bursar at Brambletye School. “They managed our entire IT infrastructure and provided support to all members of staff.” However, when the IT teacher later retired, this presented Brambletye with a dilemma. Should they appoint another teacher as the main IT contact, or should they look for external help?

“We thought carefully about what would be the best option for the school going forward.” continues Hollamby, “We knew how important IT would be for our pupils in this ever-connected and digital world. Providing them with the best IT infrastructure would be so important.”

After a lengthy tender process, Brambletye chose Serval IT Systems to be their new IT partner.

“The changes that Serval made completely revolutionised the IT at Brambletye.” Recalls Nick Hollamby. “Working with Serval provided an opportunity to build on the successful use of computing and create an even more integrated and secure learning environment. We were able to achieve our goal of making technology a core component of the unique learning experience we provide.”
