The Medway Grid for Learning (MGfL) is a secure private network connecting school local area networks (LAN) to the Medway Council network. This enables schools to connect with each other and access a number of services they would otherwise need to purchase and manage independently.

MGfL provides:

  • Internet connection
  • Website hosting
  • Virus and malware protection at school and home
  • Web filtering
  • A unified support desk
  • Email services for staff and pupils – viewing emails over a private network increases security
  • Secure file transfer
  • Secure remote access
  • Video conferencing
  • DHCP, DNS and USO services
  • ‘Open Check’ school status - provides parents and pupils with convenient methods for checking whether a school is open, re-opening, or closed on a given date
  • Teaching and learning content
  • Training and guidance with a dedicated consultant.
