Smartboard Interactive Whiteboards for Bradford Grammar School

Bradford Grammar School is renowned nationally for both its excellent pass rates in both A-Levels and GCSEs and its wholehearted embrace of ICT, believing that it is essential to learning in the modern world. They are committed to ensuring every pupil that leaves their school is ICT literate. The school has recently built a multi-million pound Sixth Form Centre, funded primarily by Roger Evans and pupils’ fund-raising.

There are currently 1106 pupils in the School, including Senior, Sixth Form and the Junior School (Clock House). In 2001 they opened two additional ICT suites as part of a multi-million pound development programme making 10 in total. In 2003 they opened the digital language laboratories together with a similar suite for Sixth Form students. 

Systems Assurance Ltd were asked to assist in exploring various options whilst taking into account all Bradford Grammar School’s concerns.
After their site survey, a suitable installation plan was agreed. Several classrooms required individual soundboards for audio through the 14 speaker pairs we recently installed.  The Sony VPL-EX4, 2000 ANSI Lumens projectors were suspended from the ‘true’ ceiling through the false ceiling using Unicol universal projector mounts and cable management systems.

Interactive Whiteboard without the Board!!

We’ve just had an amazing demo on the new Epson EB 460i interactive Projector. Yep thats right…you put it on the ceiling, point it to a wall and it replaces an Interactive Whiteboard!!! It runs any software you like, Promethean, Smart or its own. What a clever little device, first on the market and the demo went as smooth as you like!!
An interactive Whiteboard solution is expensive, requires a projector and usually is only saved for the interactive work so normally doesn’t site pride of place in the main area of the classroom. This can be used as a projector, video player or interactive whiteboard! Watch the video on youtube for a quick demo and check out the specs here.
Ask your account manager to book a demonstration at your premises.
