Chromebook Options

Option 1: Pay in monthly instalments

We currently have a scheme open which allows you to pay in monthly instalments. This is open until the midnight on the 10th February 2020.  The scheme is primarily aimed at Year 7 students, however all students are able to take advantage of the scheme.  To access the portal, view more details and sign up please visithttps://www.tech4learners.co.uk/users/login and use StPhil2020 and Welcome01 as the username and password respectively.

There is a £5 discount per month, for parents who contribute at least £20 per month to the school building fund.  This discount is not documented on the above portal but will be applied after you place an order by the school.

Parents of pupil premium students are entitled to a Chromebook at no cost.  The Chromebook will remain the property of the school, be subject to damage checks periodically and be returned to the school at the end of Year 11.  Alternatively, parents of pupil premium students can choose to purchase a Chromebook using the scheme.

Option 2: Pay in full

This option is available throughout the year and using the scheme described in option 1 when there is an active scheme.  Please contact aal@stphils.org.uk for more information.

Option 3: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

In this option, you would privately purchase a Chromebook device from, for example, Currys, Argos etc.  The school requires a payment (currently £43) which pays for the licenses and software we install on devices.  This payment is included in the two options above and is a one-off payment made per device.  The device must be a Chromebook and we will not allow other devices (Windows laptops, iPads etc.) on our network.  The school does not provide insurance or warranty for any privately purchased device and we recommend you arrange for this yourself.

The Device (Option 1 & 2)

Currently, we offer one Chromebook – the Acer 721T.  More details can be seen here https://www.acer.com/ac/en/GB/content/professional-model/NX.HBREK.002

The device is covered by a three years manufactures warranty and three years of accidental damage and theft insurance with no excess.

The licenses and software

With each device we purchase licenses for:

  1. Google Management – this allows us to manage the Chromebook and make sure the apps and settings applied to it are suitable for educational use.
  2. Securly – this extension provides internet filtering while the device is used outside of the school to help ensure your daughter is safeguarded online.
  3. NetSupport DNA – this is another extension which enhances the internet safety of the device and monitors the device for inappropriate or harmful behaviour or content.
