    From the point of view of expansion, you could always consider where, in future, you might mount a cabinet for a switch if someone suddenly decided they wanted a full suite of PCs in that room. Maybe a network point (or two, or whatever) plus power in one corner of each room, letting you add a wireless access point or a switch cabinet if needed.

    I wouldn't encourage adding too many cabinets in this way. It would be better to wire in new equipment to as few cabinets as possible, provided the length is 90M or less.

    Ethernet all around the rooms, we always have staff and computer rooms changing around for whatever reason to another, helps if everything is already wired up, then in the patch panels just run a cable to the nearest free port on a switch.

    I'm planning on having 6 at all teachers desks (1 for PC, 1 for Phone, 1 for VGA from Projector 6 spare for future use), a double in the ceiling for projector and projector VGA, then a normal classroom should have 3 doubles on each wall spaced in sensible places along with power (assuming its all in Daedo Trunking) this should give scope for moving rooms around. I'd also have a double at the ceiling for Wifi AP, and also potentially ones for speakers as they can be doe over structured cabling now. Whatever you put in will NEVER be enough.
