Hoylake Holy Trinity CofE Primary School, Wirral Designed and delivered by Hi-Impact Consultancy, powered by ELe®
Our client’s opportunityWith 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 solutionHaving 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.
- A 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.
