In 2018 the Reading School Parents’ Association successfully raised funds to provide the LRC with 6 laptops. These were added to the pool of research laptops available to the boys for self-study requirements. This took us from 14 laptops to 20. However, sadly some of the existing 14 are several years old with damaged screens and worn out touch pads and are out with their support contracts. Our current aim is to add an additional 6 laptops to the pool. These devices cost £500 each and are of a rugged design to cope with constant and multiple users, and come with a 3 year support contract. The new devices are the first computers in the school to be running Windows 10 and have access to the applications utilised by the school.
