The Great Schools Trust is firmly focused on helping the students of each of their academies become successful young people who have gained the necessary academic skills, intellectual habits, qualities of character and leadership traits necessary to succeed at all levels and become successful citizens in tomorrow’s world. Their actions are based on the trust’s fundamental belief that a high quality education is a civil right for all young people and not dependent on their family’s wealth or postcode.

The project
ASPIRE Centre Liverpool will be moving into refurbished accommodation at our Kings Liverpool Academy site. As the school is small 40 place alternative provision setting, with an ICT budget well under the EU procurement threshold the Trust will run a “3 quotes” exercise. Along-side the procurement the Trust will design and support the ICT solution at nil-cost to the project to achieve best value from our budget allocation.
We are looking for a partner to provide us with the required professional services and procurement which will also integrate the new systems into our existing systems at our other Academies. We will be implementing an enterprise infrastructure throughout.
Our device strategy will be one-to-one with the students each having a tablet device, this needs to be integrated to the classroom AV so the pupils can project their work onto the projector/TV. Information Technology will also be a core subject at the Academy. The teachers will be provided with a Laptop.
