It is an extraordinary story.

During 1994, St Martins School had achieved a ratio of one computer between two classes. The school had enjoyed a very positive relationship with the local Acorn computer dealer, and with some excellent leadership within the school, a number of exciting software programmes were being used to support the teachers and students in their work.

Interactive fiction titles such as Granny's Garden and The Crystal Rain Forest were teamed up with presentation programmes such as Magpie, document processors such as PenDown, and databases such as PinPoint to create a powerful teaching and learning resource.

A parent meeting was called to discuss the idea of achieving an average of one computer for each classroom. That meeting was to have a far-reaching outcome!
