Parental Leasing Scheme

We are delighted to announce that we are launching a “Microsoft Notebook for Learning Scheme” for the students of Beacon Academy Trust. We are very excited about the impact it will have on the teaching and learning; our students’ daily life is filled with technology and they are quick to embrace new developments.

We want our students to feel at ease in this rapidly changing climate. Notebooks provide a great vehicle to help our students become responsible digital citizens and lifelong learners. The educational experience for our students should be as varied, dynamic and stimulating as possible (in the 21st century) and we know through our extensive research that this technology will support this goal.

Embracing the combination of school and home learning is crucial to the future success of young people. Technology allows learning to be increasingly engaging and allows the school to extend effective learning beyond the classroom. Notebooks will enable all our students to have anytime access to information wherever they are. We want our students to have access to the greatest source of information ever assembled and to study in their own innovative and personalised way.

We need to make full and effective use of technology for learning and, coupled with this, is the need to ensure students learn safely, effectively and productively. I hope that all the information you need about our scheme is here on our website.
