Digital Signage is having a huge impact in many independent schools across the UK and it’s great for TrilbyTV to be a part of that, offering a simple solution that is MADE for education.
We went to check out Channing School for Girls in Highgate, North London, who have been using TrilbyTV since 2019. Our director Neil Emery had met them at the Bett Show and we were really looking forward to seeing how they had been utilizing their digital signage since then. Upon arrival we were immediately greeted by a MASSIVE multi-screen display in the reception area. It was fantastic to see the impact that a screen can have. When thinking about good first impressions, this is definitely the way to go!
Walking down the corridors, the work that they were showcasing was exceptional! One of the great benefits of using a simple digital signage solution is that if a student creates something inspirational in the classroom, it doesn’t need to stay within those four walls, it can be shared throughout the school instantly. The screens were also showing results, achievements, memos and Twitter feeds. All a great way to keep parents and the wider community up to date.

Digital Signage Inspiration from Rachel Williams
We spoke to the Assistant Director of Sixth Form, Rachel Williams who has been really proactively using TrilbyTV and its features. Walking into the sixth form stairwell, we saw the weekly timetable up on the screen which is a fantastic way to get it noticed.
“When we did the TrilbyTV training session I was thinking I want a screen in Maths.” she said, sitting in front of her screen with the slides on TrilbyTV ready to go. “I’ve got a notice board up and nobody ever looks at it. Now I’ve got an online Google Slides presentation which allows me to update instantly if there’s been a room change.”
“In Maths, we also have a new puzzle of the week. We also had the maths challenge last term and I knew that year 11 were all going to walk past. I took everything off the Maths board and put a big sign up saying “SILENCE – SIXTH FORM DOING AN EXAM” and I could hear them going “shhh shhh, they haven’t finished yet,” it was sooo great, I didn’t even have to leave the room.”
Integrating screens surroundings
The great thing that we found was that some of the screens fit in perfectly with the environment around them. The art department in particular had masks on the side of the walls and a screen showcasing the student art. It just shows that digital signage is not invasive and can integrate with its surroundings with just a simple bit of planning.
A big hats off to Channing, it’s fantastic to how they are utilising TrilbyTV to celebrate student’s awesome achievements!
