Empowering students and creating a sense of pride
The video explores how simple the IT department found setting up and passing ownership to different digital leaders – empowering students and showing what goes on across the school.
“When we looked at TrilbyTV, it was very much user focused and for us as an IT department all we had to do was set it up, get it working and then hand it over to the users. Our sixth form team are able to take charge of the notices that go out to our sixth form students, the same in music and sport and drama.”
Sarb Singh, IT Manager at Brentwood School
TrilbyTV identified Brentwood as the perfect candidate for the video as they have grown their signage to 23 screens around their site. Brentwood, whose school values are ‘Virtue, Learning and Manners’, created the perfect gateway for celebrating success amongst stakeholders, whilst also showcasing a wide variety of content including images from trips, social media feeds of current events and up-to-date menus.
By adding an extra layer of visual communication around the site and giving everyone the opportunity to create, it has generated a real sense of pride amongst the wider community.
Headmaster Michael Bond also joins Sarb in explaining how visual communication is vital in an education setting and how the digital signage software has helped Brentwood achieve its communication goals.

TrilbyTV, created in 2015, is the number one digital signage platform made for education. Founders Ben Stanley & Neil Emery were technology trainers, who were fed up of walking into reception areas and seeing TV screens switched off. After investigating further and plugging in a cable or two, they’d usually find the Christmas play pictures from five years ago. When looking into why the screens were switched off initially, there seemed to be a pattern; the software was too hard to use and had to be constantly micromanaged by the IT department. This is why they created TrilbyTV, the easy to use digital signage software that gives users ownership and control of their own content.
The platform offers a full range of content options for digital signage including video, slideshows, Twitter feeds and web content. It also contains a content catalogue, full of education-focused ready to use content from well known and trusted organisations.
