New 2 year Laptop Scheme

2 Year Laptop Scheme

Moving forward into Year 10 there are 2 options for laptop use at school:

  • To continue to participate in the laptop scheme and receive a new laptop for September 2020. 
  • To use the existing scheme laptop with no warranty or insurance cover.

As the insurance and warranty are due to expire on the current scheme devices, we highly recommend taking advantage of signing up to the new scheme and receiving a new laptop for the remaining 2 years of your child’s education at Perins.

Students who will be starting Year 10 in September are therefore invited to join our 2 year scheme.  Please take time to read ‘Laptop Use in Years 10 & 11’ and the 2020 Laptop Scheme Information and Frequently Asked Questions sheet:

Key information:

  • Response form indicating your decision to be completed for all Year 9 students by 22 May 2020.
  • Response form also tells us if you’d like to keep the existing laptop for school or home use.
  • Perins will be placing the order for new laptops 3 June 2020.
  • Suggested monthly donation is £20 and will be collected for 21 months starting 25 August 2020. The final collection therefore will be 25 April 2022.
  • The insurance and warranty will be valid for 24 months.
  • New laptops will be handed out at the start of the new term in September.
  • Transfer of ownership payment for existing laptop due by 7 September 2020 (via Scopay).
