School children facing computers in classroom

It’s well known that schools and colleges across the UK have strict budgets that need to be adhered to. This means that schools can struggle to get the essential upgrades needed to provide students with the learning tools to aid their school experience.

Technology is fast becoming one of the most important tools for studying, with a huge amount of learning resources now available online, as well as coursework and essays being written and submitted through online tools. If your school is struggling to upgrade to better technology that will aid your students’ learning, there are a range of options available to help you get the computers and laptops you need.

Choose refurbished IT equipment

Brand new computers for schools can be a huge expense that is usually difficult to find the budget for. Choosing refurbished IT hardware is an excellent way to get the updated IT assets your school needs but on a far more affordable level. Refurbished computers for schools not only give students access to the right tools they need to aid their learning, they also mean your school can save essential funds for other upgrades around the school.

When choosing refurbished, you not only get more for your money, but you can usually get better specifications on computers and laptops, as we upgrade and update all of our refurbished stock to make them the very best they can be. All of our computers for the education industry go through a rigorous testing process that means they are fully secure, up-to-date and working optimally, ready for use by students and teachers in your school.

Our range of computers and laptops for schools are not only of excellent quality, but they also come with a 12-month warranty for peace of mind, should you need it. We’re proud to have saved schools up to 50% on their IT hardware compared to buying new – for some schools, this equates to tens of thousands of pounds in savings which can be used to further improve your school’s facilities.

Replace outdated tech

If replacing a whole suite of IT for your school isn’t feasible, look at just replacing the most outdated bits of tech first, and regularly continue to do this until all of your IT equipment is up-to-date. Or if there are computers and laptops that get more use than other pieces of tech, look at replacing the most important and well used equipment first.

Whilst this is a slower way of doing things, it means you can make a start on upgrading the learning facilities for your students.
