Rothwell Junior School and Rothwell Victoria Infant School are two large federated schools based in Rothwell, Northamptonshire. With 676 pupils ranging from 4-11 in age attending the school, the school’s vision is to achieve the highest academic standards for all.
The reason for change
Head of Year Three and Class Teacher, Gareth Rust was tasked with upgrading 33 classrooms which had legacy and out dated whiteboards to interactive touch screen displays. In 2016, the School made the decision that the existing whiteboard were no longer fit for purpose, with many of the whiteboards no longer able to respond to touch interactively.
“We were looking for a display that would offer consistent and crystal-clear clarity for the children without compromising one the size of the display that the teaching staff were used to using, Avocor fitted the bill perfectly,” says Gareth Rust.
Finding the right solution
After making the decision that a refresh of the existing interactive display estate, Gareth and the Head teach attended the Bett show in London to research what was available and the choice was vast.
Gareth was immediately impressed with the Avocor interactive solution and how the display met all his criteria. “The interface was simple to understand and one that all of our teaching faculty would embrace.”
The Avocor display demonstrated excellent value for money whilst it also successfully replaced the legacy technology offset the cost implications of ongoing maintenance of the antiquated solution. Rothwell Junior School immediately saw the benefit with pupils being able to read the displays, gaining more time in lesson to learn and teachers able to start using the displays instantly with no complicated adoption training required.
