For pricing, contact Academia or something. Academia Ltd | Educational Software Licensing, Hardware & Training
Bloxx also do a web demo if you wanted a proper demonstration.

We had a demo from bloxx along with some pricing. Found that bloxx we £4000 more expensive than smoothwall. We are looking at Websense again or Smoothwall but may have to have a third for rules. Dunno if we can ask for just smoothwall or websense prices. Smoothwall does look the better deal when it comes to licensing as websense license per device and with BOYD which i plan to do in the future, then things could rocket out of control...

We use BLOXX - the deal was very keen on price, including 3 years support and maintenence.
You have to negotiate.. One of the hard drives in the RAID set recently reported a problem - a quick call to BLOXX support and a complete replecement unit arrived before 10am next day - with our configuration pre-loaded.
Also - the BLOXX stuff works well and is easy to use..

Could you give me a rough idea of price and is it per pupil?

..it's per device, not pupil.. we got a TVT-1250 which is a mid-range unit - we paid for 3 years worth of updates and support and the hardware was thrown-in (we were upgrading from an older model though).. I've no idea of the 2012/13 pricing.. but the update and maintenence costs were similar (or slightly lower) than competing products..

Both the companies are very flexible on price
Just show them the quote from each other.
