Reading, UK – 4 August 2009: Driving timely communications via the internet, Elstree School is staying connected in the school and extended community. Elstree, a leading boy’s preparatory school founded in 1848, is not new to evolution and has been online for the past 10 years. To continue its evolution and drive their online presence forward, Elstree (www.elstreeschool.org.uk) has turned to DediPower, a leading UK provider of managed hosting and data centre solutions, to underpin the site and provide the school with managed hosting solutions.

The internet is increasingly being used to eliminate barriers for Elstree School and is more than a communication tool. It has enabled the school to more fully involve parents, providing them with access to an extensive photo gallery of school events and emergency SMS messaging facilities. The site also allows Elstree to promote the school not only nationally but globally to attract both prospective staff and students.

“At Elstree our online presence has become a vital element in the way we engage with both current and prospective parents. We needed to be confident that our website is available to the community at all times. Having worked with DediPower previously, we were impressed with their quality of service. Their managed hosting solution allows us to leverage our website design work, whilst at the same time benefiting from the backup of DediPower’s extensive technical knowledge and support.” said Tom Ward, Head of Science and Chair of the IT Committee, Elstree School.
