ICT Infrastructure for New School Buildings

Dataspire has proven experience of delivering ICT projects for new school buildings.


New School ICT Installations

Working with major construction companies and schools, both directly and through the DfE framework, Dataspire has enabled and continues to support hundreds of fully integrated ICT systems. Our intelligent service provision is flexible enough that we can work around any unforeseen problems that might occur onsite.

Trusted expertise

Dataspire has operated exclusively within the education sector since 2005. We are trusted by schools and Multi-Academy Trusts across the country to deliver robust ICT solutions that facilitate outstanding teaching and learning environments. We pride ourselves on being a pleasure to work with and we are committed to delivering the right solutions, on time and ready for staff and students to use.

Working in partnership with Schools

Dataspire is an approved Education Technology ICT Solutions supplier within the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Framework. Many of Dataspire’s longstanding relationships with schools began through a successful tender process via this framework. Once we are in a multi-year partnership, Dataspire can begin the ICT design and engagement and show your school exactly what is possible with ICT. Together we will create a clear ICT vision and strategy which will lead to a detailed solution design ready for implementation.
