ICT firm’s £9m school contracts

Newtownabbey-based ICT company Northgate Managed Services has secured £9m worth of new business with schools across the UK.

The contracts have been signed with the UK’s first free school, Aldborough EACT Free School, as well as three new academies including Richard Rose Morton Academy in Carlisle, Malcolm Arnold Academy in Northampton and Havelock Academy in Grimsby.

For each school, Northgate has tailored bespoke services and solutions to meet its specific requirements. These services incorporate teaching and learning tools including wired and wireless networks, remote access, cashless catering, access control, managed print and Northgate’s application, My School.

My School is an online learning portal that allows students or teachers to access their school's online systems and applications from any device that can access the internet.

“Ensuring each establishment was ready for the new school year was a top priority and was achieved thanks to the expertise and dedication of our on-site and service desk teams,” said Andy Ross, CEO of Northgate.
