Hornsey School for Girls

Looking for a dynamic, value-for-money VLE solution, Hornsey School for Girls approached Webanywhere after the 2014 BETT show in London to replace their old VLE with a Moodle solution. Keen to have a system that allowed parents to log in and view their child’s records, as well as being a full learning management system, Hornsey got what they wanted and more.

Hornsey found their previous system to be old and clunky, even after updating it. Students and teachers were using it less and less each day, and so the value for money was being lost. Only accredited administrators could call for support, and to become one you had to go on a two-day offsite training course.

The VLE was also limited in its editing abilities, and there were constant issues with file uploads. The parental logins displayed little to no useful information, with nothing on the parents’ site to show student work or marks.

A brand new Moodle system with a custom theme and SIMS integration has given Hornsey a responsive new platform that works on mobile, syncs all their students with SIMS and gives parents the ability to easily check on pupil progress.

The ability to call Webanywhere’s support desk at any time, from anyone, also solved the issue of the offsite training, with Webanywhere not only speaking to anyone who needs help (regardless of training), but also doing on-site training with staff to make sure they’re clued-in before reaching out. The VLE met all the design requirements and more.

The school are delighted with the results, exceeding their expectations and delivering a value-for money solution. Webanywhere also surpassed expectation with support and help.

From first meeting Webanywhere in January 2014 they have been very helpful and supportive, and came to meet with myself and the senior leadership team on several occasions before any decision was made on our new VLE.

Throughout the design and implementation process, Webanywhere worked hard to meet all of our expectations and requirements. Since we have started using Moodle they’ve also met with staff for training and have helped us to put together further training as well as passing on helpful tips and how-to guides.

I would happily recommend Webanywhere as a Moodle provider to any school looking for a new VLE.
