Samuel Pepys School Case Study

Last month  you may recall that Experia reported on Samuel Pepys official open day since the installation of their wonderful new M.i.L.E. room.


The team at Experia HQ thought that it would be a fantastic opportunity to grab the camcorder and speak to Head-teacher Joanne Hardwick up close and personal.
