Providing your child with a high-quality mobile learning device enables them to complete coursework, home learning, and revision activities both at school and at home. Numerous subjects encourage the use of virtual learning environments, such as Bedrock Learning in English and Hegarty Maths, to enhance their learning experience.

E-Learning Scheme

Our E-Learning scheme provides students with a high-quality Chromebook, which they can use for coursework, home learning, and revision activities both at school and at home. Parents can choose to make regular contributional payments towards the device, with ownership transferring to them once payments are complete. Students eligible for Pupil Premium funding can take advantage of reduced contributions. The Chromebook comes with a protective cover, and our technicians manage the device’s security and maintenance.

To enrol in the scheme, parents and students simply need to sign the acceptable use agreement and provide the necessary bank details for the standing order mandate. Additionally, we ask that contributors sign the gift aid document, which enables us to reclaim considerable tax from the government at no extra cost to the contributor.

Some of the many benefits of a school Chromebook include:

Access to the school printers
free Google Drive storage
Access to remote learning
Get a modern up-to-date device
access files at home & School
Filtered School Internet

Bring Your Own Device

An alternative to the E-Learning Scheme

If you have your own device, you can bring it to school and use it just like you would with our e-learning scheme. To get started with our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) scheme, visit the ICT technician’s office to pick up the necessary forms. Once you’ve filled them in, simply return them to us, and we’ll add your device to our system.

To help you connect to the school network, we’ll need some details about your device, such as its MAC address. If you’re not sure where to find this information, our ICT technicians can assist you.

We strongly advise bringing your device in a protective case or bag to prevent damage. Regular backpacks and school bags aren’t designed to keep electronic devices safe, so it’s essential to use an appropriate case.

It’s best to charge your device fully at home and bring it to school ready to use. Also, remember never to leave your device unattended, and if you use a school locker, always keep it locked when you store your device inside.
