We’re fully compliant with DfE requirements, and our services are proven in over 700 education establishments nationwide.

Keeping teachers and pupils connected

You can rely on us

Practical support, service resilience and ongoing reliability are all key to keeping staff and pupils online and connected 100% of the time.

Robust service

Our robust Service Level Agreement promises that services will be there whenever you need them and, in the event of an issue, will be resolved as fast as possible.

Highest quality

The quality and responsiveness of our support team are second to none, and it’s the reason for our continued success.
