Laptops for Learners

Why we need your help

Will you help us provide laptops for Archer Academy students who don't have one? 

Can you imagine how hard it is to try and do a Maths test, write an English essay or explore a History source during lockdown without access to a computer? 

We’re asking you to help us provide 20 laptops to help Archer Academy students whose learning could be transformed by having a basic computer, costing around £320. We are allocating £1,400 from school funds to put towards the total cost of £6,400, and we’re asking the wider community to help us raise the remaining £5,000.

Being able to provide these laptops would make a huge difference to students who either don’t have a computer, or have to share one device with their whole family. In normal times, they can use our computers at after school club, but that’s not an option during lockdown. 

Many of them are already at a disadvantage educationally, and the lack of tech risks them falling further behind, especially as we now know we're unlikely to be fully open before September. And although there is a government scheme to provide laptops, it's extremely limited. 

We’re doing what we can; we’ve been printing out resources, and have already lent out 10 school laptops to students who were struggling without one. But we know we have at least 20 more students who need similar support if they're to keep up with their studies.

If you can, please help us support these students to continue their education during this difficult time by donating to our campaign.

**UPDATE**  Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far. We have another group of children on our waiting list for a laptop and other plans we’d love to put in place to support our students at this time. The more we raise, the more students we can help, so do please keep giving.

Thank you so much for providing a laptop for my son. It was very difficult insuring both my children got their classwork done on time with only one family laptop in the house.
