Bury Grammar School
Bury Grammar School is an independent’ day school in Bury, Greater Manchester, England, that has existed since c.1570. It is now part of a group of schools for Pre School, junior, senior and sixth form studies. Bury Grammar School is a vibrant, high performing School with a rich history. The school achieves outstanding examination results whilst enabling each individual pupil to shine within an encouraging and supportive environment.
Bury Grammar school have used and continue to use the free IT recycling services of LCWS Recycling Ltd. our sister company for the safe disposal of redundant IT hardware in line with the WEEE regulations.
In the Summer of 2017 the school had a requirement to purchase a large number of computers. Ben Whitaker the Head of IT Services at the school had a limited budget and was looking at ways to fulfil the number of devices required. Ben was introduced to Rapid IT Ltd. by LCWS Recycling. Rapid IT have an education division that work directly with schools on a daily basis and understand the pressures that school budgets are often under. By offering high end grade A, fully warrantied refurbished hardware they are able to help schools make great savings on IT hardware purchases.
Ben was looking for a minimum of i5 desktops for use in the school, Rapid IT provided a HP 8300 i5 with a new SSD drive to the school to test to see if suitable for their requirements. The loan unit provided to the school was thoroughly tested and found to be more than suitable for their requirements. The school decided to purchase 70 HP i5 Quad Core desktops. This was done at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new machines, a massive saving!
I am extremely pleased with how I managed to purchase the amount of equipment within a limited budget. The PCs have proved to be very reliable and the specification is more than adequate for the students to use within the school environment. The pre and post sales advice and all aspects of customer care have made the process very easy. I continue to use Rapid for the purchase of refurbished computer hardware and have no hesitation in recommending their services to other schools.
