IT firm top of the class with new contract

Link ICT has been chosen as the new provider of IT support to William Gilbert Endowed Primary School and Nursery in Duffield.

William Gilbert is a Church of England Primary School located in Duffield, Belper and is part of the Derby Diocesan Academy Trust. There are 243 pupils in school, aged between 4 and 11, plus a 52 place nursery.

Mark Fryers from Link ICT said: “We are thrilled to have been appointed as William Gilbert’s new provider of IT support. With most pupils returning to school full time on 8 March 2021, schools are finding that now more than ever, IT support is intrinsic in meeting the needs of learners both face to face and remotely.

“Over the last year, we have worked really hard to help existing and new clients improve both their onsite and remote working infrastructures to ensure they are reliable, safe and supportive of the organisation’s operations overall.”

Susan J Whyld, the Headteacher, added: “At William Gilbert, we understand the need to continually deliver high quality education, including face to face teaching and periods of remote learning. We are committed to ensuring that all pupils have access to the learning resources and support they need to succeed.

“During the pandemic we adapted rapidly. We developed and regularly updated our comprehensive pupil remote working policy and systems. We have appointed Link ICT as our IT support provider to allow us to draw on their knowledge and expertise to ensure pupils and staff are receiving the best IT support possible to enhance teaching and learning.”
