Our services for Schools, Colleges and Universities

We’re proud to offer extensive services for schools that take the burden of equipping a library, IT suite or any other room that needs computers off your hands.

Our services include:

Ensuring your school has the right equipment to aid the learning of students is essential, especially now that digital technology is becoming more and more important within today's society. Our refurbished computer solutions means your school can ensure pupils are staying up to date with the latest technology and complete tasks quickly and easily.

Our trade in scheme

Not only can we supply you computers, laptops and tablets from some of the leading computer brands, we also offer a removal service where we can remove any redundant IT assets from your school and give you cash for it. This provides you with extra money that can be used to improve your school's facilities.

Warranties and quality

All of our hardware is fully refurbished to the highest standards and specifications. It goes through a rigorous 20 point testing system which sees multiple cosmetic and physical checks, as well as diagnostic software tests and BIOS checks.

All of this means we are able to offer a one year warranty on all computers and laptops for schools, giving you peace of mind that you’re covered should any unlikely issues arise.

Finance solutions for school computing

If your schools budgets are really tight and it’s not realistic to be able to purchase a large amount of computers at once without putting a strain on your school, then we’re pleased to offer an excellent finance solution. This means your school will now be able to get the equipment it needs to give your students the learning environment they need in order to thrive.

We work with leading finance provider Money Sphere to offer reputable and reliable finance solutions to schools, all of which adhere to DfE regulations and are Government compliant.
