Possible help setting up 2 LANs (office & Curriculum)
I'm in the process of setting up an office network in our primary school where 2/3 PCs will be sharing resources from their own dedicated server. This server will be a file server (and possibly have AD running)
I'm keen to maximize the security of this network and pondered setting up a whole new set of IP addresses for this network to use.
However, I envisage this creating a problem because the admins in the office will need to gain access to the curriculum server to access documents. They will also require access to the internet on the curriculum network.
Hopefully this is clear enough and some one can point me in the right direction?

Why not just have one network, what risk do you envision by having them on one network? most of these risks can easily be dealt with.

Well we have that kind of setup. We have switches that have several VLAN's that divide office and curriculum traffic. If both networks need access to the same server then we place 2 nics in them.(so server is multihomed). Offcourse we have a office server that only has one nic that point to office vlan.
Snake also has a good point ergarding one network. This is possible. One can think off IPsec traffic on the office network however deep knowlegde of PKI is needed.
