The ICT specialists will supply, deliver, install and commission the entire IT solution, which includes both goods and services.
 
A primary objective for Skinners’ Kent Academy is to help improve young people’s life chances in the local area and to create incentives for students. Through the provision of exciting and engaging technology, the Academy aims to capture the imagination of learners by employing the most up-to-date, relevant industry-standard technologies.

“The Skinners’ Kent Academy offers a traditional education in a modern context. We are delighted to be working with Viglen, who have a strong track record in providing excellent ICT facilities and infrastructure for Academies. Our students will have access to the very latest ICT, this state-of-the-art equipment will complement their everyday learning.”
