Can all pupils take part?
Currently, we're rolling out the scheme to current Yr7 pupils. Over the year we will be expanding this.
How long can I spread the payments over?
You are able to pay all upfront, or over 12, 24 or 36 months depending on how long your child has left at the school.
What happens at the end of the agreement?
On your final payment the device becomes yours.
Will there be any credit checks?
No, everyone is approved and there are no credit checks.
Can they use the device at home?
Yes, the student can use the device to further enhance their learning, and we recommend that you set your security setting on your Wi-Fi accordingly.
What happens if I cannot afford to join the scheme?
The Academy will have a number of devices that can be borrowed to use in lesson time, these devices will be kept in the Academy and given out when the learning requires. Students will not be able to take these devices home.
When will I receive the device?
The ordering window will open on the 18th October 2021 and orders need to be placed by 10th November 2021. Your first direct debit will be collected on 25th November 2021. Devices will be delivered to the school and distributed early January 2022.
Can I bring my own device?
Yes, but you do so at your own risk. You will also need to pay for a Google Education licence to enrol the device onto the school network (Currently £30). The school programme includes Advanced Repair/Swap-out cover.
