L.E.A.D. IT Services was started in 2010. Originally the company was called Noel Baker IT Services, as the company was created as an entity of the school. The company had originally been set up to prevent redundancies within the department, as the school was facing this.
The business began with one external primary school and one business, that was supported; there were 4 technicians to cover Noel Baker School and the two additions. Over the years, the business has grown, as has the number of staff within the team.
In 2016, the company moved under a trust called L.E.A.D. Academy Trust. The school was joining the trust later in the year, so the business had been planned to move over too. After the move, the company changed its' name to fit in line with the trust and there it became L.E.A.D. IT Services.
Currently, as of 2017, the company has over 25 team members; they support over 55 schools and businesses, ranging from nurseries to colleges, as well as specialist schools.
