The Learning Schools Trust (LST), an academies group backed by Swedish schools firm Kunskapsskolan, has named European Electronique to provide its ICT infrastructure.
The firm will provide a range of hardware and software including servers, student devices for every student, and a learning platform.
Its system employs a central data centre for all LST schools, that it claims will enable the group to cut its technology costs.
The contract award follows a year-long competitive bidding process.
Steve Bolingbroke (pictured), Kunskapsskolan's UK managing director, said that LST academies would provide "an innovative, personalised education which relies on a robust ICT system accessible at any time by students and staff.
“European Electronique will provide us a single, integrated system across all of our Academies and put a personal device into the hands of every student,” he added. “This is the sort of ICT system that the ‘Smartphone Generation’ expects in business, in homes and in public places.”
The Learning Schools Trust is a charitable trust that currently runs three academies, and aims to run up to five. It uses Kunskapsskolan’s model of "personalised" learning.
