Case Study: Ernest Bevin


The college which specialises in Sport, Mathematics and Computing, is based in Tooting, South London and caters for 900 boys between the ages of 11-16 and a further 375 co-educational students at Sixth Form. Providing the best in learning facilities is of paramount importance to the school as it strives to equip its students in their most formative years and prepare them for either further education at University level, or indeed, for their first steps into employment.

“Part of our drive here at Ernest Bevin is to ensure that we provide the very best for our students. That means the best in sporting facilities, science and technology. That’s why we work with partners like Hardware Associates, to help us source first class technology without breaking the bank - leaving us to invest in all our facilities,”
commented Principal, Ms Rukhsana Sheikh, BSc, MA.

During last year Ernest Bevin saved £12,000 by purchasing over 60 refurbished Dell-9010-SFF desktops and supporting peripherals from Hardware Associates. “There’s no doubt that Hardware Associates’ Q20 Promise and warranties, as well as their extensive knowledge in this area takes the risk out of buying refurbished hardware for our school.

Their fast turn-around on sourcing and delivering as well as the immaculate conditions of the computers makes them our go to in all things hardware related.”
