Aylesford Primary School’s new IT Suite

The new IT suite was officially opened on Monday, 30th September.  The school raised more than £15,000 via fundraising through the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and kind donations from local companies and charities.


The school strategy is to grow the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) curriculum to give all children access to more opportunities to develop digital, creative and critical thinking skills in a bespoke modern setting.


Children will be able to extend their IT and literacy skills and showcase their creativity through stories, games and animations, enhanced by the school’s future plans to install a 3D printer and more iPads.


The school held a special assembly, inviting the companies to see the IT Suite be officially opened which gave them a wonderful opportunity to express their thanks.


Rachel Looms, Chair of Aylesford PTA, would like to thank the following for their support; King Henry VIII Endowed Trust, The Norton Foundation, St. Mary’s Hall Trust, Warwick District Council, NFU, Austin Edwards Charitable Trust, Sarah Windrum, Asda and Sainsbury’s.


The Trust supported the IT Suite with a grant of £4,640.
