Improve your school's communications with hosted telephony.

Efficient communication systems are an essential part of school life. However, the traditional ‘landline’ telephone network is being switched off in 2025, and every phone line in the UK will need to move to a fully digital network.

That’s where hosted telephony comes in. Hosted telephony is a cloud-based phone system that offers numerous benefits for primary schools like yours, for example:

  • Cost Savings: Hosted telephony can save you money by eliminating the need for expensive on-site hardware and maintenance costs.
  • Improved Flexibility: With hosted telephony, your staff can make and receive calls from any location, as long as they have an internet connection, whether they’re in school, off site or working from home.
  • Enhanced Features: Hosted telephony offers advanced features such as call recording, call routing, voicemail-to-email, and auto-attendant.

A key recommendation of the Government’s EdTech Strategy is for schools and colleges to actively consider the benefits of moving to cloud-based IT systems, especially as the ISDN switch off approaches.
