Crest Boys and Crest Girls Academies have received £100,000 for technology gadgets
Schools in Neasden are at the forefront of technology thanks to thousands of pounds worth of funding.
The Crest Boys and Crest Girls Academies have received £100,000 for a brand new Apple suite, 3D projectors and glasses and more than 100 new PC’s while students have also been given an Ipad.
Nimet McCann, Head of Science at The Crest Academies, said the investment would give staff and pupils a “welcome boost” ahead of a busy summer term.
She said: “The flexibility of the new laptops and iPads will be a great help to independent learning and the Apple suite is spectacular.

“Many of our students are used to working with Apple products but are unaware of the range of software and programmes available to them.”
Phil Hearne, Executive Principal of both schools, also welcomed the news, commenting: “I am delighted we have managed to secure some of the ICT funding early and whilst quality equipment must be matched by quality education, it is a fantastic taste of what is to come in the new buildings”.
