Do I Have to Buy a Chromebook?

Do I have to buy a Chromebook?
  • It is not compulsory to purchase a Chromebook but we hope that parents and students will be sufficiently convinced of the benefits of owning a device that can be used both in school and at home that they do choose to buy one.

  • Apps and extensions are much easier to manage if everyone is using a school-purchased and licenced Chromebook

  • Chromebooks can be purchased with one-off payments and monthly payments, whichever is most convenient for each family.  Please see the Purchasing page.

  • Students who don’t have a Chromebook will need to collect one from the IT support each morning and return it each afternoon; those devices can’t be taken home.

  • Students who attract Pupil Premium can purchase their Chromebook at a much-reduced cost.  Please contact the school for details.

  • Other parents who face financial hardship should contact the school in the first instance, writing for the attention of Mrs Bailey, Business Manager.
