Chromebook For Learning
As a Google College which uses Google Classroom as our main curriculum platform, it is important to ensure that all our students have equal opportunities and for our students to be successful, a balance of school and home learning is crucial.
We have therefore set up a Chromebook for Learning Scheme for families who would like to purchase an affordable high-quality device that your child can use, spreading payments if necessary. Financial support is available: please contact the school for further information.
The Chromebook for Learning Scheme enables us to extend learning effectively beyond the classroom. With the use of Google Apps for education, including Google Classroom, this will give students ready access to the information they study at school wherever they are, and whenever they like on their own personal Chromebook.
The College will continue to use more traditional methods of learning and teaching. The Chromebooks are an educational tool to enhance learning, and will be used both in the classroom and at home. Our community will be taught how to use the Chromebooks for effective and accelerated outcomes.

Private Purchasing of a Chromebook
You may decide that you wish to purchase your child’s Chromebook privately. If so, there is a fee of £35 for the device to have a school Google licence. Privately owned Chromebooks are enrolled onto our management system at the start of the academic year. The Chromebook will subsequently only work via your child’s school login. At home, school management restrictions do not apply and students can browse freely. It is not possible to install private apps on a school managed Chromebook, however students can still access sites through the Chrome browser.
We wish for every student to be advantaged with access to technology: if your child receives pupil premium funding and you would like financial support, please contact us via email@example.com
