Partnerships for communities with a school

A £2 million grant fund was available from BT Group for Community Fibre Partnerships delivered by Openreach for communities in the UK to get superfast, or ultrafast broadband. Grants of up to £30,000 toward the cost of new fibre infrastructure were available, so long as that new infrastructure served the local Ofsted registered (or equivalent) school or learning establishment.  It was also extended to registered charities under the same terms.  Applications for this grant are now closed as the funding is all currently allocated.

Increasing access to the right technology and the support needed to get the best from it is a priority to BT Group; having the grant to help communities get superfast broadband helps communities and schools to achieve that.

  • Superfast broadband can enhance learning and online safety
  • Students and staff won't see any internet slow-downs, even during peak times
  • Schools that have got superfast find it has a very positive effect on teaching outcomes and students spending more time accessing virtual learning environments​
