SCHOOLS across the county were offered the chance to save money, thanks to an IT solution that was launched last month.

The IT package, provided by Cloudhappi, was showcased to schools in Devizes on September 28.

King Alfred Trust in Pewsey has already saved £10,000 across its two sites, Pewsey Primary and King’s Gate Primary, in Amesbury, by refreshing its IT, combined with a faster and more efficient broadband and filtering solution, powered by Netsweeper.

The schools now have a modern IT solution, using faster internet speeds, with the security and resilience demanded by banks and government agencies.

Nigel Jones, managing director of Cloudhappi, said: “In a poll, schools across the board cited budget pressures as their number one problem, followed by recruitment and retention of teachers. Cloudhappi offers a solution to both, by saving schools money which can then be spent on employing new teachers.
