Updates applied to our firewall were scheduled overnight,

so that users were not inconvenienced. Everything is working this morning, so very happy

Secondary School

Mike was extremely helpful and he understood our urgency...

in the matter and resolved it for us. We as a school highly appreciate this help, if it wasn’t solved an online exam that was scheduled couldn’t have been run. So, thank you Mike.

Martin Robson

IT Services Manager

Cumbria Education Trust

We have been with Coconnect for coming up to year now,

despite some issues with Openreach, Coconnect managed to keep us online whilst our new leased line was being installed. Their support has always been rapid and top notch, the whole team are fantastic - highly knowledgeable and very committed. We’ve been so impressed with their customer service we are now in the process of moving the other schools in our MAC to their private cloud solution and couldn’t be happier.

John McCaul

Network Manager

Holy Trinity School, St Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Multi Academy

We have not quite finished going through the transition...

of our broadband from local county council to Coconnect, but to date I could not be happier. Our account is managed by one of the directors; he is proactive, helpful, and always available to answer any of my questions whenever I call/email. We are transitioning 8 schools and seem to be on track to complete as planned! I would not hesitate in recommending them to other schools.

How it works

Save money and achieve more with the cloud

Bringing multiple schools together on Coconnect’s private cloud network will allow your sites to communicate and share resources more effectively.

Centralised control

Filtering configurations can be applied and tweaked easily from a single point, for individual sites or across your group - with or without our help.

Performance without the expense

Coconnect’s private servers are used to consistently deliver the same features and benefits you’d get from an on-site Smoothwall appliance but with more flexibility, lower costs and shorter lead times.

Guaranteed uptime and availability

Our Tier-3 data centre, 24-/7 network monitoring and expert technical support allow for a 99.5% uptime and availability guarantee, leaving you to focus on providing the best learning experience for your students.

Fast connections – faster installations

Once you’ve decided to switch, you can leave us to do the hard work.

Our experts will configure your connectivity and safeguarding solutions to meet your exact requirements. You choose the level of communication needed across sites as well as the specifics around who can access what on the web. Going forward, you’ll have the flexibility and support to make adjustments if your requirements change.
