depends on whether your 11 year old is likely to break the screen or not !

The Air 2 will have a better screen but because it is laminated to the digitiser will be expensive to repair (about the same as your are paying - £150 ish)

The 5th gen will just need a digitiser - maybe £10 from eBay

Speed wise not far apart, both will run iOS13, the Air2 will have the better screen (although I have said that already !)

Thanks for replying, I'm guessing a warranty doesn't covers screens?
Applecare + does !

Some do, the vast majority won't....

Ask the seller ?
Have you considered buying new? The regular iPad is £349 and if you prove its for someone in education then you get 5% off direct with Apple. Would last longer if performance is going to be a concern, also full warranty and option to buy AppleCare to cover accidental damage if that is a concern
Go new, get one from eglobal central.
ships from Hong Kong and take 7-14 days for delivery. When on offer you get a 2018 32gb iPad brand new with 1 year Apple warranty for £225.00.
