Denbigh School Sixth-Formers To Team Up With KMi

A half-day visit took place on 20th January 1998 to foster further cooperation between KMi and Denbigh School, and to explore possible projects which could be undertaken by Denbigh Sixth Form pupils. The visit followed hot on the heels of the successful link-up of Denbigh and KMi via a wireless local area network installation on 6th January, 1998.
