A Cullompton primary school has been donated six new laptops to use in its new classrooms.

Earlier this year, St Andrew’s opened its new £1.4 million extension.

Now the school has revealed that it has been donated the new laptops to connect to the whiteboards in the new classrooms.

The laptops have been given to the school by the Plymouth-based shared services company Delt.

Delt was set up by the city council and the NHS to provide services such as IT, finance, facilities management, asset management, HR and payroll.

All the profits the company makes are ploughed back into the public sector.

DELT CEO, Giles Letheren, said: “We heard about this fabulous new extension that the school was having and that it needed laptops.

“We had six new laptops that were surplus from a recent project and it seemed the perfect fit.”

DELT and St Andrew’s were brought together by the finance officer for Ventrus Multi-Academy Trust, Lynne Hyland, who used to work for the company.

She said: “This will really help our teaching and learning and it was a very generous donation from DELT.”
