"From the very first conversations with Fujitsu, we felt there was a real commitment from them. We were very excited about the solution that they were proposing – and the added value that we could see from working directly with experts."
Andrew Szymanski, Network Manager, The Warren School
The Warren School in Chadwell Heath near Romford is a mixed community comprehensive for 11 to 18 year olds located in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. With almost 1,300 pupils it is larger than average and its dual Specialist Engineering and Specialist Sports College status reflects in part its historical proximity to the huge Ford production plant at Dagenham and West Ham United football club, whose training ground is just a stone’s throw from the school gates.
The Warren School was striving to improve performance and exam results. To support this it needed an innovative and affordable way of replacing its old and unreliable IT.
Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers and Fujitsu PRIMEFLEX® vShape 25 virtual infrastructure, combined with a close working partnership between the school and Fujitsu, featuring regular site visits to talk to staff and students about how to get the most from the solution.
