Feedback from HSS customers
"The Hosted School Service enables us to have up-to-date equipment in all our classes for everyone to use."
Hazel Wood Infant School, Totton
"We have been really impressed by the HSS install. The team worked in a non-intrusive way over the summer and managed to get the office ladies set up much quicker than they had anticipated which went down well. I have had nothing but positive feedback … All in all, we have been very pleased."
Kings’ School, Winchester
"HSS is great and is really changing the way we work."
Abbotswood Junior School, Totton
"It just works! It takes the stress off the teachers not having to worry about things not working or having to spend time trying to fix things. Pupils can just get on and work without issues."
Wherwell Primary School
"Brilliant service, delivered on time and under budget! From the initial survey, during cabling and finally the install we experienced nothing but timely, tidy, professional personnel. Quick to respond to queries and went ‘live’ with very few problems, all of which were sorted promptly.
"We would recommend HSS to any school and are happy to receive calls/visits from prospective schools.
"You have a really great team."
Horndean Junior School
"The teachers want a system that works, and that's what it does. It's there for them, it's ready for use whenever you want to use it.
"We looked at the costs of what we'd spent over the last five years, we looked at the cost that HSS would be to us over five years; I think being able to spread it over the five years made a big difference for us. We needed a whole new set of kit because a lot of ours was coming to the end of its natural life, and being able to spread that made it best value for us. There wasn't a cheaper way to do it. It was definitely the best value for us.
"It does what we need it to do. Which is: we need it to work when the children log on; we need them to access the programs that we've chosen for them."
Vigo Junior School, Andover
"The whole project was a success from start to finish with professionalism and an excellent attitude from all involved ... Thank you. The project manager and lead IT consultant could not do enough to support us to ensure a complete and speedy install."
Testwood Sports College, Totton
"Fantastic service provided all the way through. Can thoroughly recommend HSS as a professional and modern approach to managing school IT."
Bursledon Federation Schools
"HSS has given us the most up-to-date and more modern equipment, with the ability to evolve forward when new products and services come on stream."
Quilley School of Engineering, Eastleigh
“As a school, we had similar reservations to every other school that has to consider changes with IT. Nevertheless, the time and care taken by the team at HSS has been second to none and consequently our experience has been extremely positive.
“The financial implications were a serious factor, but in relation to improvements and benefits for staff, and particularly their time, we haven’t regretted investing in a system that we believe is significantly superior to others available.
“Because the payments are spread over five years, we quickly understood that the improvements were affordable and therefore managed to add extras as time went on, including iPads for each teacher to support communication and classroom delivery and tracking, not to mention updating our Interactive Whiteboards which have been a great success.
“The install team were fabulous and quickly became part of the ‘staff team’ rather than ‘workmen’ in the school. Staff constantly expressed how pleasant the team were and felt happy to raise concerns with them throughout the install no matter how big or small.
“We are now in a position where we can enjoy the new equipment and system offered by HSS, whilst still looking forward to receiving new equipment over the next five years.
“The aftercare has been impeccable. Due to the approachability of the team, our queries are quickly answered and a designated member of the install team still pops in to check on how things are going regularly.
“Overall, we have been delighted with the work of HSS and would recommend without hesitation to any school.”
