St Mary’s and St John’s CE School

With many schools expanding or federating, effective communication is imperative to maintain a successful operational structure. VoIP Talk utilises the Internet to seamlessly connect people across various sites with no added complications of infrastructure or extra cabling.

The Problem

Like many primary schools St Mary’s and St John’s coped with their traditional phone system. With vast growth and expansion from a two form entry primary to a multi-site ‘all-through’ school, development plans needed to include a new solution in order to maintain cost effective and seamless communication.

The Solution

From working with the school, Leverstock identified that an integrated voice and data system would be beneficial. VoIP Talk allows the school to use one solution across two sites and has the capacity to continue to meet the needs of the school as it continues to grow.


Speech Marks “Leverstock listened to our needs as a rapidly expanding school where communication is vital to effective school function. They were quick to reflect our vision of ‘everything is possible’ and suggested a solution that not only exceeded our requirements but was also installed with minimal fuss. Long-term financial savings were another deciding factor in choosing this solution.” Seb Giacone – School Business Manager.


The Results

VoIP Talk has given St Mary’s and St John’s a flexible and user-friendly phone system, which allows both staff and callers to communicate effectively with anyone on any site. Financially this solution will look to save the school over £3000 in the next five years. 

Speech Marks Staff are now able to quickly transfer incoming calls to the correct extension and parents are pleased with the efficiency of call handling”. Seb Giacone – School Business Manager.

St Mary’s and St John’s, under Principal Matthew Glenn are proud to offer excellent education for pupils aged 3 to 18, across three school sites in Barnet, London.
