How can one school be the tech hub for 64 others? Agent4change.net talked to its IT director Lee Jepson, aged 28
When the incoming Coalition Government scrapped the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme back in 2010 the decision was accompanied by a tide of media slurs to justify it.
However, in time it has become clear that they are not borne out by evidence: there have been some remarkable successes. Noel-Baker School, a 1,600-pupil former BSF school in Derby hasn't just transformed its own use of technology for learning, it also manages (in partnership with Dell) the technology needs of 64 other local schools — seven secondaries along with primaries and special schools.
