A one-stop IT service that adapts and grows with your school
With 48 years experience in education, RM is uniquely placed to provide schools & trusts with a tailored, affordable and comprehensive technology solution that will continue to evolve with your needs.
RM Vantage helps schools
Develop a better, yet affordable, IT strategy
We conduct a full free IT audit to develop a technology strategy to suit your budget, tailored to your school’s needs.
Avoid unpredictable costs
With no up-front spikes in price, we offer a fixed annual cost that includes installation, device refreshes, systems updates, plus ongoing training and support services.
Continually keep pace with technology enhancements
We will continually highlight and help implement valuable incremental changes, so that your pupils and wider school community harness the benefits of staying at the forefront of technology.
Improve staff skills and confidence with technology
Our online and face-to-face training modules help staff understand how best to use technology to save time and enhance working practices and teaching methods.
Enable remote working
Staff and pupils can reliably access the files and systems they need anywhere, anytime, and from their device of choice. From homework to online Parents’ Evenings, staff CPD and PPA time – no one is tied to working from school by outdated tech.
Increase staff efficiency
RM Vantage enables more opportunities for colleagues to collaborate. For example, teaching staff can more easily share and re-use content, or find another teacher’s plans to cover or re-purpose lessons.

Our school IT services are backed up by a range of educational and technology partnerships - adding strength and depth to our solutions.
Understanding your needs
Our first step is to have a conversation, either face to face, via video link or over the telephone. The aim of the meeting will be to:
- understand what you want technology to offer the whole school community and specific user groups
- any technical challenges we may need to resolve
- where you feel technology can most help you achieve your strategic school plan
At this stage of the journey, we will share our knowledge of where technology and services can support your school, and give you examples of how we have helped other schools with similar requirements.
Fact finding Learning Walk
Moving on from our initial meeting, we’ll visit your school to undertake a Learning Walk.
By taking a guided tour with you, we seek to understand your school’s:
- values and approach to teaching and learning
- systems and working practices
By speaking with a variety of staff we’ll build a picture of your:
- core processes, needs, challenges
- potential skills gaps
- current technology infrastructure and usage
Developing the proposal
Following our discussions with you and your staff, and having reviewed the findings of the Learning Walk, we will work with our team of RM experts to create a proposal.
The proposal will cover many areas including, change management, training, support services, as well as new technology.
Proposal Presentation and Q&A
The next step is presenting our findings and proposal to you and your team. Following these discussions, we will make any necessary changes to suit your requirements and budgetary considerations.
Final Proposal and suggested Implementation Plan
At this point, if you are happy to proceed, we work with you to design a timely, smooth transition to the new service, to suit your school calendar and your teaching and learning needs.
