After assessing and analysing the current constraints and the future needs 4th Platform devised the solution and created a network of 150 wireless access points through the impregnable flint filled walls.
Founded in 1732, Portsmouth Grammar School (PGS) provides education for boys and girls from nursery up to sixth form and is based in a former 19th Century army barracks. The independent school prides itself on achieving excellence for its pupils and has been recognised as ‘excellent’ by the Independent Schools Inspectorate.
The introduction of mobile technology is fundamental to the school’s digital learning objectives and PGS firmly believe that mobile technology is a key tool for enhancing both teaching and learning.
“The solution has enabled the school to introduce new technologies with confidence, knowing they will be secure, while it is reassuring to know that our more adventurous pupils aren’t able to hack into the network!”
