Kramer transforms pupil learning experiences at top UK school
Kramer has installed a range of AV techology at Charterhouse, one of the UK’s leading independent schools.

Founded in 1611 and located in Godalming, just outside of London, Charterhouse is home to 960 students aged 13 to 18 in a historic 250-acre campus. Notable alumni include British prime ministers and politicians, world-leading scientists and academics, and renowned writers and artists.

Charterhouse’s vision is to become the best co-ed boarding school in the country. It aims to do so by developing a world-class educational experience, with targeted investment in facilities to modernise the learning of its pupils in preparation for their adult lives. However, the school’s legacy lecture theatre, built in the 1980s, was holding back progress. The school needed an advanced AV system to meet modern expectations, ready to be used for teaching real-world, business scenarios like presenting and pitching.

Prime AV, the integrator for the project, recommended Kramer as the technology vendor for the new AV theatre system. The Kramer equipment installed included a control keypad (RC-74DL), a room controller (SL-1N), and a presentation switcher/scaler (VP-440X).

In the last school year, the school opened its newly renovated lecture theatre, a modern auditorium with AV and presentation facilities. Ever since, the results have been clear: Charterhouse now has an advanced teaching auditorium suited to a world-class campus. Teachers can educate and present in a modern and engaging style and pupils can practise live presentation skills using AV equipment.

In addition, use of the lecture theatre has increased across all student levels and academic disciplines, and Charterhouse is even able to host dynamic speaker events and loan the space through its Community & Partnerships Programme to assist with external educational endeavours.
