Belvoir High School had been part of the Leicestershire 3 tier system of schooling until the local authority reviewed its educational provision in the Melton Mowbray area.
It was decided to implement a 2 tier system, whereby the other high schools and the upper school became 11-19 schools, the primaries changed from 3-10 to 3-11, and there was to be a joint sixth form centre for the area.
As a result of a restructure, Belvoir High School in Leicestershire needed to expand to implement a two tier educational system and to develop a joint Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) with eight feeder primary schools in the area.
Working with the school, Equanet explored all the technologies available to find the best solution to help the ICT team achieve their vision.
