Maritime Academy is excited to announce the launch of its one:one devices

For the past few years, our Trust, The Thinking Schools Academy Trust, has been researching the use of technology to improve children’s learning and experience of school; including visiting schools around the country to see what a difference it can make when every child has access to a laptop or tablet for learning.

Last September, one of TSAT’s schools, The Portsmouth Academy, introduced 196 HP360 devices (which are a combination of a laptop and tablet). This trial has gone extremely well; Science, PE, Geography and English teachers have all reported significant benefits for students.

Following this successful trial they are now moving to a full transformation to become a 1:1 environment – meaning that every child will have their own device to use in class and at home – starting this journey with their new Year 7 2021 intake.

From day one of year 7, students at the Maritime Academy will all receive a free one:one device so that they can benefit from a curriculum that has been developed with digital learning at its core.

The Maritime will be the second school in our trust to introduce a one:one scheme.

This is an exciting time to be a Maritime Academy student and I hope you agree that one:one devices will have a transformative effect on your child’s personal and academic success.

We are pleased to offer all students joining the Maritime Academy in September 2022 a free one:one device they can use to support learning both in school and at home. For more information about this offer please attend one of our open days or contact
