    We have always used Juniper / Netscreen firewalls here.

    I'm in the process of upgrading our NS25 to a SSG 140. I did look at the Cisco ASA range but in comparison with Juniper I think they are seriously overpriced imo especially if you want UTM features.

    The 5510 is a bit limited in that it has no gigabit ports so future expansion isn't great and if you get the 5520 with any UTM license for the number of machines your likely to have in a reasonably big school then its crazy money! If you have the budget then go for it but I can recommend Juniper or Sonicwall if you are looking for an alternative.
