chromebook mainThe impact that the Chromebooks for Education Programme has had on our students’ learning since its introduction in September 2018 has been extremely positive.

Bridgnorth Endowed students are able to learn, collaborate and interact in new and innovative ways, something that is essential in today’s increasingly digital world.

As a school, we firmly believe in the merits of the programme and the educational benefits of students having their own device to improve the vital link between learning at school and at home.

Having access to the latest technology when and where students need it can help to give them the very best chance of success in and beyond the classroom.

The school is now fully cloud-based and we actively encourage all students who already have Chromebooks to access our in-house resources for education. Ultimately, our vision is very clear in that every student at BES will have their own personal device to help support flexible learning and maximise their full potential.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please click on the questions below to find out more.

1. What are Chromebooks?

chromebook advantages bannerChromebooks are a budget-friendly alternative to Windows laptops and MacBooks that run on Chrome OS – a more streamlined operating system designed by Google.

Combining excellent cloud storage and the best of Google’s suite of applications, these devices are ideal for browsing the Internet, emailing, steaming videos and other online activities.

Chromebooks are extremely secure, easy to use and work seamlessly with cloud-based applications, including those used extensively by our students and teachers.

Through Chromebooks with Google Classroom and Office 365, we are able to further improve student engagement and open the door to learning in an exciting way.

2. Why has the school opted for these devices?

This device is specifically designed for student use with a ruggedised outer casing and enhanced specification to make sure they withstand all functional requirements.

6. What does the warranty and repair service cover?

The Guaranteed Repair Service covers device malfunction, accidental damage (including liquid damage) and theft. Malicious damage and loss are not covered.

Devices are covered for three years, which is the maximum support that any manufacturer is able to offer. Unfortunately, this period cannot be extended.

However, these devices can stand up to a lot as they are specifically designed for student use with a ruggedised outer casing and enhanced specification.

If there is an issue, the student simply needs to take their device to Mr Wood, our IT Technician, and he will deal with it from there. If he is unable to fix the problem, he will send it off for repair and lend the student a spare device in the meantime.

10. Can I bring my own device to school?

These devices are pre-installed with antivirus software and security monitoring installations that do not permit access to any prohibited sites during the school hours until 5.00pm. From 5.00pm, these devices can then be used freely at home.
