Gravesend Grammar School


Gravesend Grammar School is a thriving secondary school with a sixth form in Kent with a well deserved reputation for academic success.


Gravesend Grammar School needed to replace their end-of-life telephone system which was full to capacity.  They were looking for a simplistic IP based telephone system that could carry out all the existing functionalities they used and more. They also needed voicemail for all users and due to school holidays their timescales were tight.


Arrow supplied Gravesend Grammar with a MiVoice Office 250 system, 49 IP handsets, voicemail and maintenance cover. The flexibility of an IP based system (any existing data point could, in theory, become a phone location), and the voicemail to email service were also two contributing factors to their choice of system.

The MiVoice Office 250 is the ideal platform for organisations interested in the latest technology and application capability and allows Gravesend Grammar to blend their voice system with the data network, creating an efficient, cost-effective communications platform that they can easily adapt and grow over time at their own pace.


It was important that the installation had to take place during the summer break and not during school time. A decision was made by late July and implementation was complete by the end August.
