How Frederick Gough School use Smoothwall Filter to stabilise their network and regain control over their web filtering

Frederick Gough School is a community secondary school based in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire.

It is the biggest council-led secondary school in the county with over 1200 students aged between 11–16 years.

The school had been experiencing several challenges with its web filtering. It was a basic solution provided by the Local Authority, controlled by a central server and shared across several other schools. Cost effective in principle. But less so in reality. There was no ability to create custom categories so overblocking was becoming an issue. If another school created a filter rule, it would apply to all schools. Reporting was also very limited.

The school was becoming concerned about meeting its statutory obligations.
