Apple Distinguished Schools and Events

To find inspiration from schools who are recognised as showcases of best practices, Apple Distinguished Schools openly share their successes with other educators by hosting school visits and ​publishing their stories in the form of a book on Apple Books.
A world-wide community of schools, Apple Distinguished Schools are recognised for two years and have the opportunity to renew their recognition by demonstrating continuous innovation.

Leadership Strategy

Having a clear IT vision and strategy is key to success. We work with school management to identify key areas of improvement for your school and we can work with you to help you build a plan that ensures high quality support, development, deployment and enhancement of your learning vision.

People, programs, and systems have the flexibility to implement and expand new innovative practices.

Team

Influencers and innovators map out and implement the vision and keep the community engaged.

Community

Buy-in and support make the initiative successful and sustainable.

Finance

Funding is sustained over time.

Measure

School success and areas for improvement are identified by known & measured goals.

Recycling

Schools across the country are faced with the challenge of what to do with older technology which has become less effective at meeting teaching and learning goals. A lot of this technology has no value after time and schools need to manage disposal of their devices, sometimes at a cost. An important part of any deployment is sustainability. MCC offer flexible options to refresh, subscribe and upgrade existing devices and IT equipment. MCC can offset the cost of the new devices required by recycling the school’s existing iPads at full and fair market value.

Finance

Rising costs and tight budgets have made it more difficult than ever before to invest in new technologies. MyLearn is a new, sustainable approach to classroom technology that collects everything you need into a low cost, monthly subscription plan. Good financial planning and a hardware refresh plan are key parts of a successful deployment. MCC can provide a range of fully compliant leasing and subscription options for education.

Insurance

MCC offers a fully underwritten policy with options to protect against damage, theft and fire all in addition to an industry standard hardware warranty. Your equipment can be covered against accidental damage and theft and cover applies to whether an incident takes place in a car, at home or in any other location – including temporary visits outside the UK.
