Gateway Academy

PTS Consulting supported Thurrock Council with the development of a new Academy, assisting with the design of the ICT elements of the new building



Thurrock,  UK


PTS worked closely with the school’s stakeholders to create detailed use cases for new technology based on the school’s stated IT requirements and further analysis of the user experience within the new building. PTS ensured that the proposed design and technologies were best able to support the needs of the school’s employees, students and visitors.


  • Analysis of user experience
  • Solutions to match the needs of the schools employee’s, students and visitors
  • Networked gym equipment
  • Converged Network  infrastructure

“As a vendor-independent consultancy, PTS was able to recommend the most appropriate – innovative yet cost-effective – solutions to help the Council meet its objectives of creating an inspiring learning environment.”


With PTS on board, the Client was able to benefit from a technology solution that supported its vision of creating a state-of-the-art school. Since the school has opened, the performance of students in the area has significantly increased, and community relations have improved. Regulatory body Ofsted has since rated the school as ‘outstanding’.
