An academy in north Kent is encouraging parents to buy or rent tablet computers which will be central to school life in the new educational year.

A Kent school has become the first in the country to encourage parents to rent or buy all pupils an Apple iPad.

The Longfield Academy in Dartford has bought hundreds of tablet computers and from September this year, the school will require all pupils to have the deivce, making it integral to classroom lessons and homework.

The school is offering parents the option to buy it outright for £576 or pay a monthly donation of £16 for three years to cover the cost.
