Purchasing

The portal for ordering Chromebooks for the 2019-20 academic year will open on 4th July 2019 to enable students to purchase Chromebooks for September 2019. 

Please log on to our JHGS parent purchasing portal and enter either JHGS22-22 for the device options or JHGS24-24 for the option to purchase the licence/insurance only option. 

There are options to purchase the device outright or over 12, 24 or 36 months. 

Can I purchase a Chromebook myself from the High Street?

You can, if you wish to, purchase a different model (or the same) from any retailer that you choose. The recommended minimum specifications are: 4 GB RAM, Celeron 3350 processor (or better) and 16GB storage.

You will also need to purchase a JHGS licence for £18.90 via the portal. You will have the option to purchase insurance too if you wish.

What happens if I already own a Chromebook?

You will still need to purchase a JHGS licence for £18.90 via the portal. You will have the option to purchase insurance too if you wish.
