Set up in 2008, Hi-Impact Consultancy is now embedding technology into the curriculum for scores of education providers with its exciting and engaging experiences in the world of science, computing, engineering and creative media.
Hi-Impact Consultancy (Nominated by Liscard Primary School)
Whether sending 360 degree cameras into space to gain footage and data of the Earth’s atmosphere or creating an immersive Virtual Tour of a school to support the SEN agenda, hi-impact continues to push the boundaries within Education.
The Consultancy team is made up of experienced, qualified teachers who bring a wide range of teaching experience to Hi-Impact. Each has a passion for the use of innovative technology and creative media to engage pupils and motivate them to learn. These consultants work in primary, secondary and independent schools all over the country to strategically plan the integration of technology across the curriculum, provide workshops for children and deliver professional development for staff. Our team strives to ‘think outside the box’ developing new ideas to engage children and teachers. From themed ‘Robot Weeks’ to sending cameras and science experiments to the edge of space on helium filled weather balloons – projects that not only engage schools and communities but get national press recognition.
Supporting the integration of new technologies are the highly skilled Technical Support Team who not only work alongside consultants and teachers to ensure the technology is fully utilised and integrated but also continue to develop our very robust network infrastructure. From safe Internet to futureproof WiFi, from class computers to sets of iPads and from server hardware to cloud backup – hi-impact technicians provide the complete solution to school IT services. Additionally, the company is established as an Internet Service Provider to the education sector and offers secure and reliable connectivity to over half of Wirral’s primary schools.
The company anticipates continuous growth over the next 5 years on both a national and international level. hi-impact has the opportunity and ability to work with other local authorities around the country where IT provision to schools is lacking. With schools in Cumbria, Suffolk, York, Leeds and London already on board, it is offering services that education providers are struggling to find.
New online education platform – The HOST
The HOST brings together everything a school needs to empower educators, reduce workload and enrich the curriculum, including hundreds of video tutorials, subject leader toolkits and ‘Anytime Anywhere’ support.
The HOST is the result of 12 months of dedicated work by hi-impact’s team of curriculum experts and a number of specialist education partners whose aim was to create a platform where teachers around the globe can access a complete curriculum solution and receive award-winning support. With education forums and the ability to talk one-on-one with hi-impact consultants every day, the HOST has been created to ensure that every teacher has their own network of professionals to hand, should they require information, advice or guidance.
Alan Thompson, Managing Director of hi-impact, says ‘hi-impact has over a decade of experience, resources and support that has transformed teaching and learning in so many schools. It is really exciting to see an online environment that now gives schools, regardless of location, the opportunity to engage with the hi-impact team and access such a wealth of high quality materials.’

I am taking the NPQSL course at the moment and I used World Class Schools as an example of how wonderful it is to give our students opportunities and how great the WCSQM application process is.

World Class Quality Mark status has given Finham Park School an enviable reputation nationally and internationally, enabling us to recruit the best, most dynamic staff and be a school that teachers and students are proud to be a part of. The opportunities World Class status brings enable us to influence, lead others and grow as a school community as we share excellence with the very best practitioners both at home and internationally.

Thank you so much for the World Class School celebration event yesterday, it was so well organised and I came away with a lot of information and great sharing of best practise. It was also lovely to see the other schools' hard work and projects.
