After a successful trial with 8H and 8M earlier this year, 99% of Year 7 and 8 students now own their own Chromebook and all of Year 7 and 8 are making use of Chromebooks in their day to day learning. The rollout programme continues this term, with information sessions for Year 6 and Year 9 so that all students in Years 7-10 will be using Chromebooks in lessons from September. Year 11, 12 and 13 will have the choice of purchasing a Chromebook or bringing in their own device (BYOD). Please click on the links below for more information.
Using Chromebooks has given our Year 7s and 8s access to all sorts of exciting educational apps and we have been impressed with how much more collaborative their learning has become. Google Classroom has been particularly beneficial in enabling them to share work and receive feedback – and all of this is available at home as well as at school.
The presentation on 30 January to the Chromebook scheme for Year 7 can be found on the Year 7 page.
