Simple, Fast, Flexible

Armstrong Bell have over 20 years experience in the communications industry, and schools remain a key focus for us.

We understand that poor communications infrastructure can have a negative impact on lessons, students, staff and parents, and that investment in infrastructure requires a partner who understands your challenges, whilst building a strategy that looks several years ahead.

Benefits for schools

Efficiency: Saving Teachers’ Time

Good communications infrastructure should be reliable and seamless.  When staff trust that their systems and infrastructure work, they can use them to reduce workload by improving communication, collaboration, and planning. 

Reliable communication systems also eliminate the need for teachers to prepare alternative approaches, should technology fail.


Flexibility: Reacting quickly to changing environments

Being able to quickly change or adapt where and when you work, whilst upholding seamless communication with staff, pupils and parents is invaluable. Whether working from home, the classroom or on the move, choosing the right communications platform is key to delivering flexibility in the way your school reacts to change, both quickly and efficiently.


Effectiveness: What you can do

A well-functioning and well-maintained infrastructure:

  • allows teachers, students, and admin staff to use technology in a timely and appropriate manner
  • supports teaching and learning

For example, good infrastructure allows students and staff to:

  • log on to their devices quickly
  • share content and material
  • provide online feedback quickly and reliably

Economy: Saving money

The ongoing running costs of poor ICT infrastructure can be significant. For example, poor ICT infrastructure can result in schools needing to invest more in:

  • technical support
  • replacing individual parts

A planned programme of design, investment and support will reduce long term costs, whilst improving how you as a school operate, communicate, and educate.
