Our client’s opportunity

With space at a premium, the Hoylake Holy Trinity School  were looking to enhance their existing ICT suite to create more desk space for its students. From the outset, the children’s comfort, happiness and academic achievement were a priority for the school.

In replacing their existing technology, a key consideration for the teaching staff was the productivity of the teaching environment. This included addressing the excessive noise and heat their computers were generating as well improving the layout and use of space in the classroom.

The technology solution

Having successfully  addressed similar concerns at a number of other  schools, the recommended computing solution was one that  ELe®’s re-seller partner Hi-Impact  and ELe®’s own team were confident would address the challenges the school was facing.

  • ELe NUC MonitorA Power over Ethernet (PoE) system utilising ELe®’s Power Injector was recommended and installed to power the school’s desktop computing via its existing Ethernet cabling. This allowed them to remove all the old power cabling and streamline  the desk spaces
  • Sixteen brand new low energy, high performing ELe® NUC Intel® PC’s and ELe® lightweight monitors were then  installed. With no moving parts, these advanced computers would run silently and without generating heat.
  • Hi-Impact was once again delighted with the ease of deployment and speed of the PC’s as they were able to image and fully install all the PC’s on site in one school day
  • The ELe®Energy Monitoring Package was also installed so that the school could see at any time the amount of energy required to run the ICT suite. As well as allowing the school to manage their energy bills more effectively, this also presented a fantastic teaching opportunity for the children.

The results

Hoylake Holy Trinity ’s new computing technology is now delivering all the performance of a standard PC with half the energy and carbon consumption.

The main  driver for the school however was always to create the best possible teaching environment so the children could receive an  optimal learning  experience. The ICT suite is now silent and no longer overheated by the computers. The desks are clear with only the monitors on them and the cables and wiring are neat and tidy.

Without the limitations on computers needing to be located near plug points, the teachers now have the flexibility to re- configure the room  as requirements change. Furthermore all of the children  have commented on the speed and responsiveness of the new PC’s.

Our new  ICT suite is now a brilliant teaching environment where the  children can feel more comfortable and  learn with the  very latest technology. The desks  are much neater without the  messy wires and  cables we  had before and  we  can change the  layout of the room much more easily.
