The Abbey School Reading is one of the leading independent girls schools in the country with an enviable academic record and forward thinking senior management.

In 2009 we had the swine flu scare. Management at The Abbey were concerned at the possibility of an outbreak and having large numbers of girls absent from the school. We were asked to produce a platform that would enable teaching staff to upload schoolwork for absent pupils to download, complete and return via the web platform, to the teachers for marking.

In the event, it has been the snow falls of early 2010 that has prompted use of the system.

We installed our Ripe Website Manager system to handle the requirement, adding an uploader module along the way. Completion of the project took less than three days and the system has already proved its weight. The Abbey School has around 1000 pupils and every one had individual access to the platform to collect work to do at home during the snow closures.
