Connect the Classroom

DfE Grants for WiFi and Network upgrades available

We can support you through the Connect the Classroom scheme to maximize your benefit from the grant

We understand the spirit of the scheme and will work with you and the DfE to ensure your students gain the full benefit from the upgraded Wi-Fi funding

The DfE has made £150 million available for eligible schools to upgrade their wireless network.

If you are eligible, you will be or will have already been contacted by the DfE.

Advantex have already assisted numerous schools during the pilot program and can help you throughout the process for this exciting scheme.

We work on a consultative approach, and we will not charge the school direct for any advice or guidance, successful or not.
