We believe that the first school in Europe to deploy Office 2007 for all students and staff was in the UK - specifically Stoke College, an independent school in Suffolk (confusingly, not the Stoke College in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire).

They announced their deployment on their website news page on 17th January - straight after the BETT show. The quote that caught my eye was this one, from David Moss at the school:

"It is an exceptionally functional, fully featured and easy to use set of applications that the children in the Senior School are already enthusing about."

Our stand at BETT was packed with visitors keen to find out about the new software, and hopefully Stoke's experience will be repeated through other schools in the UK this summer.
