WiFi for schools & colleges
Let’s keep your school connected.
At Nortech IT, we offer a range of WiFi solutions for schools and colleges. Whatever your establishment’s size, or however remote your location, we can tailor a WiFi system to meet your needs.
WiFi has become essential for a variety of everyday tasks, including classroom teaching, general school admin and parent communication. It expands the learning opportunities for students of all ages and stages. Fast, efficient and reliable internet means your system won’t creak under pressure.
One of the systems we install in schools is Ruckus WiFi. This is a great-value system that’s designed for large user numbers and works well in trickier building environments.

This system is ideal for primary schools.
Why is WiFi so important for schools and colleges?
The internet is part of our everyday life now, and it’s essential our young people develop online skills. WiFi in schools not only improves pupils’ computing skills, but gives them access to rich research resources and a whole array of educational software and games.
Hardware such as interactive whiteboards and classroom Chromebooks is increasingly common in schools, and these need reliable WiFi to run smoothly.
As we’ve all learned recently, being able to access remote learning is vital. The school’s network forms the central hub of its home learning system; and during times when learning moves online, the school’s system needs to be ultra-reliable.
We will also talk to you about enhanced security features to keep young people safe online. Filtering, alerts, reporting and robust firewalls can all help improve online safety in your school or college.
Networks for schools & colleges
Keeping all your IT connected and running smoothly
It’s not all in the ether… Schools and colleges have a physical network of servers, hardware, routers, cabling, access points, switches – there’s a lot going on behind the scenes. If any part of this network breaks, the whole system can be compromised.
Nortech IT is experienced in designed and configuring networks in educational establishments. This could be evaluating and upgrading an existing system, or setting up a whole new network, for example in a new building.
