Laptops for schools

Pupils from Fen Ditton School were so pleased with the new Dell laptops and tech bundles we donated as part of our initiative to provide over 7,000 laptops to schools across the UK to help tackle digital exclusion.

Although children have now returned to the classrooms there is still a need for technology to support education activities inside the classroom, homework tasks, learning during the school holidays and to help schools future proof their home learning capabilities. We formed a partnership with technology provider Dell at the start of the year to invest over £2 million so that every Asda store in the UK could donate at least 10 laptops to a local school. Head teacher Mark said: "Can I say thank you so much for the kind gift of 10 laptops. These devices will really help our school and pupils delivering the whole curriculum."
