Community Fibre and Avon link-up to support new special needs school

Community Fibre and Avon Group of Companies have partnered to provide Hackney-based special needs school Side by Side with free Internet.

To support the new £10 million site, Community Fibre will install its 1GPs package free of charge, covering all ongoing monthly fees.

Graeme Oxby, Chief Executive Officer of Community Fibre, said: “Just as Side by Side looks to its wider community for support, we at Community Fibre are committed to helping those in our community.

“We are working closely with Side by Side and the Avon Group to ensure that the pupils and teachers have access to our full-fibre broadband so that they can thrive in Side by Side’s community environment.”

Side by Side will be open in September 2022 and cater for 130 pupils.

Jacob Sorotzkin, Chair of Governors at Side by Side, added: “Having access to this broadband offering - and at no cost - will enable us to continue to provide an inclusive, interactive and high quality education to all of our pupils."
