I began my new role as Head teacher in January 2017. Very soon I realised that we needed an IT provider who would be readily available, understand educational issues and who could provide advice, show an understanding of current changes in a vastly changing culture within education and ensure our hardware systems were operational for effective teaching and learning.
After speaking with the managing director of the company at an initial meeting to determine which provider would suit both my future planning and the developmental needs of the school, I was convinced by Foresight’s commitment towards children’s education; their high levels of accessible technical support and the expertise offered to support the computing curriculum.
Having the knowledge that every technical issue would be addressed as a matter of urgency and support would be provided with the next available technician, gave us the confidence that we had a provider who genuinely cared about our school.
The personal friendly approach and genuine interest in the school, its development for the future and advice to support a 5 year plan has been met with positive response from members of staff including office staff who have found the accessibility of the company invaluable in the time of emergency need. Support has even been given remotely at times of emergency.
Foresight has provided reliability and an extremely high standard level of support and advice unrivalled by any others I have experienced. Their research into latest educational curriculum and hardware to support the application of teaching and learning and keeping up to date with statutory legislation with regards to online safety makes them one of my greatest support providers within school.
I would recommend Foresight to any other educational establishment due to the understanding of the future development of schools and demand in a rapidly changing world of IT ; and to add, their knowledge of security and compliance with the latest data protection requirements supersedes that which was provided before.
I have every confidence that my school will continue to work with Foresight in the foreseeable future and beyond.
They have the ‘Foresight’ to see the future which lies ahead in an educational world.
They are: Friendly, Original Reliable, Established, Specialised, Independent, Generous, Honest and Trustworthy

This is our second year with Foresight, what can I say other than thank you. Thank you for always being able to sort our problems out, even when we’ve just had our weekly visit. Thank you for making sure everything works and for going the extra mile. Thank you for working late into the evening, when you should be with family. Our IT Technician never leaves school without making sure everything is how it should be, often leaving with the Caretaker. You keep our school informed, you always have our best interest at heart and we are grateful. The support received is outstanding.

I have worked over the last 30 years with various ICT support and with the ever changing requirements within the Education sector. Over the last five years we have been very lucky with finding Foresight.
As a Financial Director both myself and my staff are extremely busy we do not have the time to chase or double request support or items for ICT.
By employing Foresight, we find ourselves with excellent support and no hassle.
Best Buy 🙂

I’m delighted with the level of support Foresight have given Designs For Education since they took over our IT contract in June this year.
We always get a reply from them within minutes and usually a problem is resolved within a few hours.
Any major problems have been dealt with swiftly and with competence.
As technology races on at a pace it is great to know there is a team available to help with the inevitable problems that occur.
Thank you Foresight.

When you work for yourself and technology is crucial to what you do, what you need when it fails on you is somebody who can act fast and has the skills to help.
Ged and his team are fantastic. Solved my problem, explained what was wrong and gave me advice for avoiding issues in the future – such as not storing 50000 images on my hard drive.
I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.
The team at Foresight have always provided prompt assistance and support with all IT requirements for several years. The personal approach from Ged and Craig has always ensured any issues are resolved as soon as possible.
