Having returned from demonstrating the Engage school management software for independent schools at the recent ISA, ISBA, COBIS and BSA conferences, Double First is pleased to announce the winner of the iPad competition.

John Reid, Bursar at James Allen’s Girls’ School, was the lucky winner having been randomly selected from nearly 200 applications. The new iPad was hand-delivered to Mr Reid who was very happy to be the winner. “I never win anything so this is very unexpected,” he joked. “This is good news and real boon!”

Double First Engage is operational on any computer connected to the internet, including this latest device from Apple. This web-based portal allows users to work from home or anywhere in the world when required.

To ensure a fair and random selection, Double First engaged the help of the children from a local school in Sherborne St John, Hampshire. A pupil from Year 2 was then asked to select a name from all the folded pieces of paper.
