    About 1100 students
    around 150 staff

    around 700 PCs
    around 150 laptops

    1xNM
    1xSenior tech
    1xJunior tech

    we occasionally have a 6th former helping us and we certainly notice when we do (worked with us for well over a year now, has his own PC in the office and is more than trustworthy enough to allow administrator access, he's practically a second junior tech)

    We do need an official 4th man really, we cope but it's stressful, the NM does the ordering and liasing with suppliers, manages budget etc

    Senior tech does the server maintainence and management, software installs, does assistant NM work like liasing with suppliers, acts as 2IC when NM isn't here, also maintains the website.

    Junior tech does some web work, and the day to day running about replacing ink cartridges, fixing broken PCs amoung other things.

    6th former does the same as the junior tech but can also help in a few of the senior techs tasks (for learning purposes mainly)

    IMO you don't need more than 1 tech per 250-300 comps. Though that depends on how well run the network is and what other duties may be required e.g. Website/Intranet/VLE
