About Catch22

Catch22 is an award-winning, alternative and special education provider delivering programmes to young people in schools, colleges, community centres, pupil referral units and young offender units.

The Challenge

In March 2020 Daniel Swithinbank was promoted to Head of IT & Digital, with a remit to make IT an enabler for its teachers and give them the tools they needed to deliver education services remotely.

The Solution

Impressed by the Wanstor team of experts and encouraged by the trust that had built up between the two organisations, Catch22 decided to outsource all of their IT infrastructure to Wanstor.

Wanstor have been epic, from implementing massive migrations seamlessly and with ease to the huge improvements in efficiency and functionality. I couldn’t have asked for anything to be done any differently, if I’m honest."
