Once all funds have been assigned above and tenders complete there will also be a Digital Device Loan Scheme established . This is a limited programme for those who need the support the most. And we have prepared a tender to supply a small number of devices. If you wish to be considered for this programme please follow the links above and email with your submission. It will also be used to support those students whose devices become damaged and while waiting for repairs. Devices will remain the property of the school and must be returned at the end of 3rd year or when own device returned. There will also be replacement and repair fees if these school devices become damaged while in the possession of students. These devices are not covered by school insurance.
We will be in further contact in the months ahead so enjoy the rest of the summer
