Print and IT services and solutions that will transform your school, academy, college or university.

Education sector | Kyocera-Annodata

We understand the challenges that you face as an education organisation.

We have a long tradition of supplying the education sector having worked with hundreds of schools, universities and colleges for nearly three decades and being part of the education frameworks since 2008.

Managing limited budgets and resources to deliver excellence to your students and ensuring those in your care are protected and safe to grow is paramount for every school, college, academy and university.

We take away the uncertainty and risk and provide you with the stable, secure and innovative environment so you can get on with the job of making education the inspiring and enabling experience for all learners.

We see Headteachers and management teams facing six key, immediate challenges with digital transformation. 

Our Frameworks

Having been a successful supplier within the Public Sector for many years we understand the rigorous processes required for procurement generally and within the Education Sector specifically. That’s why we’re delighted to be an approved supplier on several key Public Sector procurement frameworks. This enables you to procure with confidence, both in terms of getting the best value but also being fully compliant with procurement rules and regulations.

The challenges.

Environmental Impact

The governments net zero target means IT spend needs to be with companies with strong environmental charters in place.


Parental and student expectations and wider society scrutiny build pressure on the sector.


Constantly evolving regulation makes the role of educators increasingly complex.

Legacy platforms

Complexity of existing or legacy platforms and software across a fragmented landscape. 

Change managment

Constant change generates upheaval and is difficult to manage.

Lack of skills

Lack of skills with new technologies such as cloud, AI and cybersecurity. Coping with these challenges can be a major headache for academy staff.

Security & compliance

Requirement to address security and compliance – the immediacy of this requirement can lead to quick fix solutions, which does not help with long term challenges. 

The solutions.

Our approach is a flexible and adaptable managed services model providing just the right amount of services tailored to each individual requirement.

The Connect The Classroom scheme enables schools to install a high-speed Wi-Fi network infrastructure, which allows students to connect their laptops and tablets and participate in an effective teaching and learning environment.

What schools are eligible for the Connect the Classroom funding?

Forty priority education investment areas have been identified by the Department for Education and are eligible for the Connect The Classroom funding, these are – Blackpool, Bolton, Bradford, Bury, Coventry, Derby, Doncaster, Dudley, Fenlands & East Cambridgeshire, Halton, Hartlepool, Hastings, Ipswich, Kirklees, Knowsley, Leeds, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Middlesbrough, Norfolk, North Yorkshire Coast, Northampton, Norwich, Nottingham, Oldham, Portsmouth, Rochdale, Rotherham, Salford, Sandwell, Scarborough, South Tyneside, Stoke on Trent, Sunderland, Tameside, Wakefield, Walsall, West Somerset and Wirral.

Schools in the education investment areas who have also been evaluated as Requires Improvement or Inadequate in their most recent inspection are also eligible.

What are the benefits in upgrading to high-speed Wi-Fi network infrastructure?

Creates a better learning environment – classroom learning today is more reliant on cloud-based apps and digital learning technologies which puts a greater strain on the wireless network resulting in network downtime and disrupted classroom learning time. Wi-Fi 6 is built to give reliable and fast wireless coverage across the whole school.

Carbon neutral printers & MFPs from Kyocera.

All new printers, MFPs and Production printers are offered fully carbon neutral. We offer a bolt on to older Kyocera models that allows them to be carbon offset.

How do we offset the carbon of our print devices?

Kyocera can carbon offset all our devices, plus the Kyocera genuine consumables they use over the lifetime of the product (see t&cs), through a simple bolt-on to the device purchase. This covers all elements of production, packaging, transportation, Kyocera consumables, plus Kyocera genuine toner and device recycling. Based on these factors, we’ve calculated how much carbon needs to be offset for each device in our range.

We offset your new Kyocera devices through myclimate, the same partner we use to offset our own UK business operations. With myclimate, we invest in international projects which are certified by CDM Gold Standard. It is the most stringent certification for carbon offsetting projects and is supported by 60 NGOs worldwide. It is the only standard which certifies a project’s sustainable development factors, including co-benefit criteria like healthcare, job creation or reforestation. You can learn more about myclimate from our climate action page.
