    One MFD for all staff to use (we did have 22 printers darted around but this was cheaper for us)
    A cheque printer
    A colour laser in admin office for letters and letter headed paper etc
    A colour inkjet in head and deputy head office.

    Total of 5. If staff bring their own in, I don't support it, or install it or buy ink.

    About 45-50 printers (various colour lasers, mono lasers and inkjet printers - most are now Ricohs on a cost per page scheme) and 3 Ricoh photocopiers.

    About 20 here. Majority of printing is done on centralised large copiers, and then if deptartments want their own printer they can pay for one from their own budgets.

    The admin team have a few, as they're spread out across a few different offices.

    We have...

    Nine networked Canon MFDs for student and staff use around the school. Everyone has a PIN code to release print jobs, but plan to move to contactless smartcards in the future. All print jobs get automatically deleted from the server if they are not released within 24 hours.

    Three HP printers (two mono lasers and an A3 inkjet)

    One Epson A3 inkjet used (very rarely) in Art.

    I have wittled down the number of printers that we have here.
    We have:
    4 networked corridor printers serving 20 classrooms.
    3 in the office area
    5 printers in 5 offices locally installed
    3 printers in other areas
    15 printers for a school with 450 children and 50 staff.

    We have around 110 mixed local and network, I am looking to consolidate these down to around 30, giving each department a B&W and Colour Laser, the rest staying in Admin sections.

    We only have a single HP 2015 in each department office. Its networked and staff can print to it depending on what location they log into.

    Works well.
