Multi Award Winning Schools Broadband & Leased Line Connectivity

Why should you choose Exa Education as your school's Internet Service Provider? There are many answers to this but, most importantly, it is because we are brilliant at what we do. We deliver consistently fast, reliable and secure internet connectivity.

Exa are the only Education focused ISP in the UK today; we do not have a home user division to split our focus or sell school furniture, laptops or mobile phones; we simply focus on being the best that we can be, doing what we do, an Education focused Internet Service Provider.

Schools stay with us - not because we tie them into long-term contracts - but because we deliver on our promises.

As a pioneer in the field of internet connectivity and content filtering to schools, Exa Networks has grown to become one of the largest independent providers to educational organisations in the UK - enabling us to bring you our wealth of knowledge services designed specifically for the education sector. 
We now look after thousands of schools throughout the UK, providing services from connectivity to email - right through to complete packages. In fact in the last year alone more than 900 schools have moved to Exa.

Exa are proud to be members of the British Education Suppliers Association (BESA), The Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA), RIPE, Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) as well as founding members of IXLeeds. We also sit on the board of the largest internet exchange in the UK, LINX.

As a genuine alternative to the now outdated models of the Regional Broadband Consortia, and most Grids for Learning, not only does Exa Networks offer a better, faster and more reliable service, we can also save many schools thousands - or even tens of thousands of pounds - every year.

Unlike many providers who claim to have developed specific learning networks, or simply resell traditional home user internet services to schools, Exa's services are exactly the same as those we provide to high-end corporations, ensuring that you will have the same fast speeds and reliability that all of our customers have come to expect.

Exa's multi award winning school broadband and filtering services and value for money is the reason many schools consider us to begin with. They stay with us for our award winning customer service not because we tie them into long term contracts. With all of Exa's services available on just one year terms; and because we have NEVER increased the prices of our connectivity they don't feel they need to tie themselves in to protect the prices, as we always keep them competitive for our customers.

Exa is also the sole worldwide supplier of Echori online parental reporting. Designed to meet all the criteria laid out by Becta and to help schools meet the aim of the Ofsted framework for parental engagement, Echori Parental is a one-stop simple, yet highly effective, solution.

If you would like to speak to schools in your area who have already moved to Exa Networks, or require more details on any of our educational services contact our Education Manager on 0345 145 1234.

Video Testimonials

Reading a testimonial can be reassuring but there is always a niggling doubt about its authenticity.
We can assure you that all Exa's written testimonials are truthful and written by the person/school listed. However, it always seems more "real" if you can see the person giving their testimonials - so we have created a video testimonials page. Our customers were given no more than a thank you for their time.
