    320 computers (desktop, laptop, and thin client) and servers, 40 phones (and the phone server), 20 printers, 32 IWBs, lighting in drama and hall, PA system and i'm sure a few more... 620 pupils, about 80 staff who use computers.

    And there's just me.

    your brother said your kind of right, you shouldn't have an inefficient IT Dept you shouldn't just keep hireing people.

    and as for us

    700 Computers,

    1x ICT & Network Support Manager (sorry we have to use the FULL title, or we get shouted at )
    2x Technicians
    1x Trainee Technician

    I work in a Junior school as a part-time tech, but I am also in a large middle school which goes up to Year 8 and therefore has a heavier IT requirement, and I am part-time there as well (15 hours in each school)
    I don't know of any senior schools around here that don't have full-time techs - but then they are quite large schools (upwards of 1600 pupils, mostly)
    I can't imagine how a senior school copes without a permanent tech - even a part-time one would at least be dedicated and not rushing off to do other things

    Without stating the school name, which side of Norfolk is this? I cant say over this way I know of a school (high school) around this way that doesnt have an IT Department of some kind, even primaries that are not in an ICTS Field Tech contract have someone supporting them (usually their local high school, like we do)

    Do you know if the school has a contract with ICTS higher than the basic package? It may be they have a field technician visiting on a set basis or on a call-out only basis?

    We have 50 desktops, 80 laptops, 3 physical servers, 4 virtual servers, 26 IWB, plus a lot of media equipment.

    It's just me here and whilst I am paid as a Network Manager I am also expected to cover as a TA for two days a week.

    So it's 130:0.6 here!

    However there are some things that I am unwilling to add to my workload because of that, for instance I have hired in a company to create a new website for us as I don't feel that I have the time to do it properly, and the same goes for the VLE, bought in as I would otherwise be expected to add all of the content to make it a success, regardless of how much staff training is done.

    Oh, and I'm term time plus 2 weeks.

    We are on just over the 210:1 mark, Think its about 1,300 users.
    Although thats not including 2 other sites we do IT support for but thats a if/when needed.
    But seems to be fine normally, good work load really and myself and the NM are both full time.
