Chromebook Programme

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 vital 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.

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