We are a medium sized school based in the suburbs of Reading. We are currently struggling with our school budget, as many schools are, but remain ambitious and want to provide the best learning opportunities for our children. We have recently as a school been reviewing our curriculum and have decided that all our learning must be 'Real and Practical' to ensure that pupils get the most engaging experience possible.

What do you want?

We want to buy the school a set of VR Headsets. We recently paid for a VR company to visit the school so that we could try it out and the children absolutely loved it! See attached photos.

Who is this for?

These will be made available for the whole school.

Why do you want it?

As our curriculum driver is 'Real & Practical' it has always been apparent that when you are learning about the rainforest or Ancient Greece it can be very difficult for children to understand what it actually feels like, how enormous it is, how hot it is, etc. We know that the more experiences children actually have, the more dynamic their writing will be, the deeper their vocabulary will be and the more engaged they will be in their discussions. We feel that VR is an amazing way to give children this opportunity in a relatively cheap way. (Although we would love to fly to the rainforest!)


We would like to buy:

Sub total: £1,439.80

Credit card fees (2%): £28.80

Total: £1,468.60

Stretch Target!

Thank you so much for your donations so far!

We've hit our initial target, so are now aiming to £1,895 to buy 8x Motorola devices & 8x VR goggles.


Please donate, help make a difference to our pupils!
