Discover our complete managed IT services for schools, taking care of all your IT and technology needs

Our experienced technicians are equipped to handle all of your IT and managed service needs, from troubleshooting and maintenance to software updates and cyber security.

Face-to-face IT support from our specialist technicians
Technology is central to every aspect of running a school. Having a secure infrastructure in place with fast connectivity makes everything work smoothly. And if something goes wrong, it’s important to have a reliable team in place to put things right quickly.
Many schools and other educational establishments don’t have their own in-house IT department. Or you might have a small team but need extra help.
With Croft’s complete managed IT support for education, you get regular, scheduled visits from a skilled technician. You’ll get to know them well, as we endeavour to send the same person every time - so they’ll get to know your setup and needs, too.
Your technician is there to support you with everything relating to IT in your school, whether it’s a big issue or a small niggle. They will resolve issues that may have arisen since the last visit, and they’ll also carry out planned IT maintenance tasks to prevent future issues and keep everything running smoothly.
Our technicians work closely with your school teams to make sure that you are getting the best out of our service.
IT support for education establishments of all types
We work with all types of schools and educational settings, including multi-academy trusts. We have relationships with most local authorities and also work with preparatory, private and independent schools. We also provide IT support for children’s centres, PRUs and youth centres.

KCSiE (Keeping Children Safe in Education)
