Schooled Up IT – The Team

The team at Schooled Up IT has been migrating New Zealand primary and intermediate schools to the wonderful world of Google Apps for Education since 2008.

Fergus Bruce

Managing Director

Fergus has been making I.T. happen in schools since 2002, forging enduring business relationships along the way. His love of technology and its benefits, both realised and potential, is unwaning and informs his quest to provide the best, most innovative solution for every individual school client, in every situation.

Equally, Fergus draws inspiration from the dedication and excellence in school leadership, teaching and learning, empathy, compassion and endless patience to which he is privy in his daily work. Apart from the importance that he places on finding and implementing the best IT solutions, Fergus believes that effective communication is key to establishing and maintaining authentic relationships.

Fergus has an open door policy and welcomes direct contact from schools’ staff and Board members and the wider school community.
