Connect The Classroom
advice for your school

We can support you through the Connect the Classroom scheme

We already have helped schools, like yours, take full advantage of the Connect the Classroom DfE programme in just 5 simple steps.

The procurement process need not be complex and confusing. We work closely with the DfE, Everything ICT and CCS 6068 so we understand the full works of the scheme. You can rely on us to design, procure, and deliver the upgraded Wi-Fi for your students.

WiFi in schools is transforming the learning experience in more profound ways than ever before. From self-help learning to direct collaboration, students are benefitting from fast and reliable internet access in the classroom. The Department for Education’s (DfE) recognises the importance of WiFi in schools and as such the Connect the Classroom Scheme has returned until 2025, helping to keep schools across the UK in Educational Investment Areas connected with a seamless and future proof wireless networking solution.
Specialising in IT services and strategy for the education sector, we understand the unique requirements and challenges schools face in regard to IT and connectivity.
