Age of students: 4-11

Percentage eligible for free school meals: 20%


About us

We are a primary school based in Bournemouth, England. We are keen to enhance the pupil's computing experiences as they are extremely passionate about their learning - especially relating to technology!

What do we want?

We would love to buy a set of 30 headphones for the children to use in their computing suite.

Who is this for?

This is for all children to use in the computing suite, for many different curriculum subjects.

Why do we want it?

There are many programs that the children are keen to use, videos they would like to watch and educational games they would like to play with sound. However, our computers are fairly old and headphones are needed to enable children to hear through the computers.


30 x Kidz Gear Volume Wired Headphones for Kids @ £10.99 each

Total = £329


Thanks everyone for your generosity! Now that we've been fortunate to raise more than our target, we have added a stretch target because we'd like to buy: 

15 x Tablets @ £170 each = £1,700

Our new total is £2,029.
