From September 2021 each pupil joining Year 7 in the Senior school is required to have a mobile device. The current device that is purchased through the school is a Microsoft Surface Go. The cost of the device for September 2021 was £456.88 and will be charged on the first round of your billing. Pupils joining the school that are in Year 8 or above in the academic year 2021/2022 will get an iPad if they choose not to buy a Surface Go. The price for the device is very competitive as we are able to buy in bulk, a saving of almost £200 when including the case and Office 365 package (price correct at time of writing, please note that the price may increase or decrease depending on market prices). Safety is always at the forefront of our minds and when this Surface Go device is brought into school, this device will come under the school’s secure internet browsing management system.

Since the introduction of mobile technology and each student having a personal device 8 years ago, they have been invaluable in the learning development of students. The devices have allowed students to research and explore independently, which is an integral skill in learning. It has also allowed for more creative learning to take place with the different features the device allows.

The Microsoft Surface Go device will facilitate the next step in our students learning; its capability, storage, interface and integration capabilities allow for excellent useability. Surface Go’s have all the benefits of a full Windows laptop while retaining the freedom, portability and usability of a touch screen tablet. The school’s licensing allows all staff and students access to the full Office 365 suite, including Teams, which has already proven invaluable during the COVID-19 lockdown.
