In November 2010, the brand new Bexhill High School opened, following funding of £37m from the Government’s Building Schools for the Future programme. A new Skills Centre was also constructed on a second site, offering the community a wide range of vocational courses, from engineering to woodwork, to hair and beauty.
Bexhill High is officially an International Technology Community College and a showcase of technology innovation in education. A new state-of-the-art telephone system was essential, to match the technologically advanced facility.
Jon Martin, ICT Programme Manager at East Sussex County Council, who managed the IT implementation at Bexhill High, explains: “Bexhill High is a state-of-the-art facility offering new ways of learning, with three large LCD screens in every open plan learning pod and wirelessly connected netbook computers for every student. We needed a technologically advanced telephony system to match the fantastic ICT facilities in the school.”
