As a result, they produced student video performances containing the children’s favourite books and songs, which also tied into World Book Day.

Growing development Priors Hall Park donates laptops to Corby Business Academy
The master developer of Corby’s growing community at Priors Hall Park, together with a number of the housebuilders on site, has generously provided Corby Business Academy with over 40 much-needed laptops for home learning.
Urban&Civic has donated vital funds and secured additional support from the development’s housebuilders Lodge Park, Jelson Homes and Francis Jackson, to sponsor a total of 42 devices for students throughout the community.
The donation, which comes as part of Urban&Civic’s ongoing partnership and governance in the school, means that even more students at Corby Business Academy can continue their studies remotely during the latest lockdown.
Having already distributed 122 devices to those who need it most, the school’s initiative preceded the rising national concerns surrounding accessible home learning for all. Through Urban&Civic’s support, the total number of laptops distributed has now risen to an impressive 164.
