Hello,

We are looking at using lime survey in a school environment where up to 150 or 200 people conceivably could be accessing our survey site at the same time.

Would LimeSurvey have any issues in scaling up to meet that volume of usage? if so are there limits on the volume we could handle? Is this more a question for my web hosting company?

This very much depends on the hardware and the configuration of your server. Limesurvey seems to scale pretty well on a decent software (search in the forum, there is a sticky somewhere about this). Carsten might have some first hand experiences as well.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Have a look at www.limesurvey.org/en/forum/development/...-performance-testing

Usually this amount of users should be no problem as long as you don't use a shared hosting. It pretty much depends on the hardware (CPU time and memory) of your server.

I can recommend using www.LimeService.com which is a Limesurvey hosting optimized for large surveys/user groups.
