15 users currently actively use and access the Karten centre, but many more access the facility and use the space and therefor the benefit from the equipment.

Normal education hours are from 9:00 till 16:00 week days, term time. We provide 52 week residential care and the facility is used in the evenings and during holiday times by residential departments for student entertainment and activities.

Services offered to the Network

We are more than happy to work with any of the centres on projects and items that can be of benefit. Currently our most specific experience in relation to our Karten Centre would be in animation and green screen projects. Wider than that we have done and continue to do significant work in enterprise content management and development of web applications in SharePoint and are able to provide assistance in networking, mobile computing, infrastructure and online safety.
