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.

Discover our top tips for upgrading tech on a budget, and some of our best tech options for schools. Want to know more about how we can help your school upgrade IT suites? Get in touch with our dedicated education contact, Sean Wiggins on 01428 707900.

Choose refurbished

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, they come with a one year 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 is tens of thousands of pounds in savings which can be used to further improve your schools facilities.

Discover some of our success stories with schools across the UK:

Replace outdated tech

If replacing a whole suite of IT for your school isn't feasible, look at just replacing the most outdated bits of tech first, and regularly continue to do this until all of your IT equipment is up-to-date.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.

Finance options for schools

If your schools budget is really tight and can't stretch to replacing all, or some, of your school computers, then our finance option will ensure you can get the tech you need to support your students and teachers. Supplied by MoneySphere, our finance options allow you to upgrade essential computers for education without completely blowing your budget in one go.

All payments are at a fixed rate so you can accurately plan for the payments, without any nasty surprises. Want to know more about our finance options? Discover all you need to know here.

Trade in your old IT equipment

Another service we are pleased to offer schools is our trade in option. This is where we can take any old, outdated computers and laptops off your hands and give you cash for them. This is not only a quick and easy way to get some extra cash for your school to use in other areas, it also means you can get rid of any outdated tech that may be taking up essential space and cluttering up classrooms.
