Whitehill Community Primary School, Halifax

Whitehill Primary School in Halifax have had a long standing relationship with NCS. We have successfully completed a number school-wide projects for Whitehill which have included:-

  • The installation of Promethean Interactive Whiteboards and short-throw projectors
  • CAT5/CAT6 and fibre cable installations

Most recently, NCS have supplied and configured 76 Apple iMac computers with a Windows Server 2008 R2 back-end running on Microsoft Hyper-V virtualisation technology and Apple XServe. The iMacs dual boot with Windows 7 to give the pupils the best of both worlds.

Lord’s Independent School, Bolton

Lord’s School in Bolton called on NCS to equip their classrooms with the latest Promethean Interactive Whiteboards with short-throw projectors and additional network cabling.

Tom Ainsworth from Lord’s School described the work that NCS carried out:-

“They were efficient, friendly and very technically capable. Willing to go the extra mile to ensure we got the products we needed fitted, and willing to provide free replacements when two of the promethean board pens were missing after installation. We are a small independent school, and NCS Support helped us modernize with promethean boards fitted to every classroom with projectors, sound systems and extended network hardpoints fitted.”
