Our MissionToucan Computing - The IT company you can trust
At Toucan Computing, our mission is to listen to your needs and work closely with you to find the best ICT approach for your school.
Whether you’re looking to update your software, expand your school network, introduce school-wide Wi-Fi or integrate your Macs and PCs, we can help.
Helping you choose the right technology
With the right products, you can increase young people’s motivation and engagement in your school. Mobile devices are opening up exciting new possibilities for learning. We’ll help you decide on the balance of technology that best suits your school and your budget.
Training you for success
To help your school get the most out of its Apple technology, we offer a broad range of training options to suit your needs and skill levels, including Apple Professional Development (APD) courses held by educators, for educators. For full details, see our Training page.
Getting you up and running
Apple products may be easy to use, but installation across the whole school requires knowledge and experience. Here at Toucan, we supply and support some of the largest Mac-based educational institutions in the country, and we can guide you through the implementation process.
We offer flexible support tailored to your needs. You might be looking for smarter ways to manage music or media, or advice on the latest Apps and innovations. We can offer ‘remote access’ support to schools hundreds of miles from our offices, as well termly on-site ‘health checks’.
Toucan Computing: Apple in Education
We’re skilled at handling change management within schools, academies and higher and further education. So if you need help and advice on introducing Apple products into your school, you know you can trust us.
Staying ahead of the latest developments in the fast-moving world of ICT is a challenge – but one that today’s schools and colleges must meet if they’re to give their students the best chance of success. With our years of experience in IT and in education, we can help you meet it.
Formed in 1996 by two ex-teachers, Toucan Computing works solely in the field of education. No one understands better than we do the unique ICT needs of schools, and we pride ourselves on the personal service we offer all our customers, no matter how big or small.
Our DEP ID is 1B4EAO. Find out more about the Device Enrolment Program here.
Toucan Computing values fairness, diversity, long-term partnerships and social responsibility. The company encourages members of staff to become school governors and a number have taken up this challenge. We are also pleased to have supported a number of charities over the years and have regularly donated to Richard House Children’s Hospice.
I have every confidence to say that working with Toucan and Julian everything is possible. It's really pleasing to see how with you guys (all of Toucan) our school is turning into a completely different technology led school. Well done to everyone.
I have just got back from a very valuable morning at Heronsgate which has been immensely helpful. Thanks very much for facilitating this. Your advice is much appreciated.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help with sorting out the iPads and setting them up. Gareth did a brilliant job with no fuss. I was really pleased and appreciated not being needed while teaching. I will be strongly recommending you to any other schools looking to get iPads.
Gareth did a fantastic job. We were both very impressed with what he did which has got us where we need to be with our iPads.
Julian's training was excellent. Staff were really engaged and motivated. We'll book him again!
I'd love to thank you for all the support and help you provided during your visit on Wednesday.
Our relationship with Toucan is always very professional. As a company their values match with ours. The apprenticeship scheme they offer is excellent and gives us ICT support whilst investing in a young person's future career prospects.
Thank you Andrew; it’s a pleasure working with you. You’ve been friendly, supportive and always willing to find a solution for us. You’re a star!
Thanks so much for sending Andy in today. He was an absolute trooper and slogged away all day at getting us back online. It didn’t take knowledge alone; a lot of creative thinking and determination was required. I was very impressed.
Dear Andrew, I have finally made it to the end of the school year and with that I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for ALL the help and support that you have given me! I am always grateful for your time and sometimes feel I would be lost without you!!
Toucan is a great Mac company that we have been using since it started more than 20 years ago. Staff listen to your needs, treat you intelligently and provide great service. They're always prepared to go that extra mile. And, better still, they do it with a genuine smile.
Just a quick note to say thank you to Alex, who helped me this afternoon with expired tokens. He was super helpful. Great service from Toucan, as usual.
I meant to email you today to say how happy I was with Andrew's support on Monday. Everything I asked for was possible and completed. There was no moan, no fuss, no impossible thing. Andrew made our training day successful and complete. His patience was tremendous.
I just want to put on record our appreciation of the support that Aman provided yesterday, along with the unscheduled additional support today. His work, especially in liaising with LGfL, was instrumental in getting the system back on an even keel. Thank you.
