What is the DFE Connect the Classroom Project?

Connect the classroom is a WiFi 6 initiative, funded by the Department of Education (DfE) to address this issue.  This future thinking initiative will fund new Access Points, mGIG LAN switches and fibre cabling to enhance the pupil learning experience.

What next?

Selected schools will receive communications from the DfE or local authority.  At this point you'll be required to complete a bid form to secure your funding. 

Schools are only allowed to procure from selected vendors and this is where Pentre Tech can assist you.  We will work with you and your school to provide a bespoke solution based on the DfE approved vendor, Cisco Meraki.

As a cisco Meraki Partner we have already helped proviosn the latest Wifi Technology to schools around the North West in Wave one of the program and secured all schools an upgrade from 5 years licencing to 10
