What is Connect the Classroom?

It's time to connect your school's classrooms with the latest, education tailored networking solutions by partnering with Stone and Cisco Meraki on your Connect the Classroom project.

Am I eligible for Connect the Classroom?

Participation in the CTC programme is by invitation only – there is no application process. The programme covers 55 authorities, 24 of which are priority education investment areas. All schools in those priority education investment areas are contacted and targeted as part of the programme. Within the remaining 31 authorities, the schools that were rated as ‘requiring improvement’ or ‘inadequate’ in their last OFSTED inspection will also be targeted and funded as part of the programme.
