Chromebooks For Learning

I am delighted to announce that we are ready to launch the Chromebooks for Learning Scheme for Ormiston Forge students in years 7, 8 and 9. We have worked with a number of parents and students and taken your views via our Facebook page. We are very excited about the impact this scheme will have on the learning of our students and sincerely hope you will share in that excitement as we step together into the future of teaching and learning at Forge.

It is not future technology; it is the present. Our students embrace mobile phones, Internet and personalised technology. It will be their future working and learning experience. Chromebooks will help pupils organise, communicate, learn and study at home and in the Academy.

Individual access to technology is not something that should happen in a few rooms in an academy. With Chromebooks it will be for everyone, everywhere, anytime. Students are used to having access to the Internet at all times, in all places – our academy should not be the exception.

To provide you with the best value for money in terms of both robustness of device and price, we have been through a rigorous and competitive tendering process and I am sure you will agree that what we are now able to offer you represents a superb package.

If you opt to buy you will pay for your Chromebook package via direct debit on an online portal. All applications will be made through the portal and we will send you access details. In essence the Chromebook will cost £10 per month for 24 months, including insurance and warranty; in some cases the cost will vary according to financial need and if siblings currently attend Forge.

I hope that you will find all the information you need about the scheme below in the PDF flyer, the FAQ and the invites to the events, but if not feel free to contact us at any time.

Yours faithfully

Andrew Burns
