What we do
eSafety and safeguarding
XMA understand that online safety and data security is at the top of a schools priority list when it comes to deploying technology in a learning environment, and that is why we go above and beyond to ensure that your school is able to use the technology in the safest way possible. We work with a number of safeguarding partners so that all solutions we present to you have options available for students to learn in a safe and controlled environment.
Supporting STEM through IT
Encouraging and supporting STEM subjects through IT is at the top of our agenda. We work closely with schools across the UK to empower their students to pursue STEM subjects, and make it more attractive to students through the use of technology.
Educator and technical training
We understand that your teaching staff need to be completely confident in after the deployment of new technologies. That’s why we offer hands-on training, mentoring and coaching tailored to your requirements so that your school can amplify the way you work and better facilitate learning in the workplace and classroom. We are certified training partners across multiple platforms and in education our in-house Apple Professional Learning Specialists, Google Certified Trainers and Microsoft Innovative Educator Masters, provide coaching and learning for senior leaders and teachers, from early years, primary and secondary education.
Cloud first learning environments
As more data is generated across a school from multiple locations and the complexities of the required processing intensifies, you may need to address new ways of reducing operational costs, and increasing business efficiency. Cloud is often a core component in achieving this. We’ve built strategic relationships with a select number of partners to deliver Cloud Services that are able to bridge the gap between public and private cloud, enabling effective, hybrid deployments. It’s our aim to help create an agile computing environment that remains flexible enough to grow or change in the future.
Mobile device management and deployment
In order to save time and resource on your IT staff, XMA offer a simplified approach for managing a multitude of devices. With selected software already deployed across the devices, your IT department can automate updates, manage usability and set up restrictions, and fix any software issues from any location.

"We have chosen to move to Google Apps and Chromebooks as they provide a system that is easy to manage any number of devices, from our first Chromebook and as the project scales. With web-based applications and storage, staff and pupils can work from anywhere using a shared platform, eliminating servers and the issues they bring. XMA have been friendly, supportive and available whenever we have needed them, making the transition smooth and stress free." Neil Hall, Head of IT, Southbourne Junior School
