I think there is already a thread about BSF somewhere but I can't find it and I think this may be important.

Take a look at the latest thread on the schoolforge discussion site http://groups.google.com/group/sf-uk-discuss

apparently Kent have come up with a plan for the future in conjunction with microsoft which at first glance anyway looks like a fait acomplis (is that spelt rite). I haven't had chance to read everything but it's looking like any school not wanting to go along with the plan will have to make up an extremely strong case and the sooner the better or it may be too late.
