After an initial trial with 15 RM Tablet PCs early in 2003, Invicta Girls Grammar School in Kent bought a further 180 in September to give to every Year 7 student. A few months later, Ofsted inspectors observed: "Independent learning is well established in Year 7 lessons where Tablet PCs are used. Although there are some teething problems, the tablets make a significant contribution in English, mathematics, history, geography and religious studies."
