Google Chromebooks for Students

We are delighted to introduce a ground breaking initiative at Kingsdown School which will provide every student with a Chromebook device. An exciting project destined to take our students’ learning experience to a whole new level.

At Kingsdown School we champion each and every student, preparing them for a bright, dynamic future. We celebrate our students becoming well-informed, responsible digital citizens and lifelong learners. In the 21st century we firmly believe it is imperative that our students educational experience is varied, compelling and as stimulating as possible.

Our daily lives are filled with technology and at Kingsdown School we are quick to embrace new developments with ease and adapt efficiently to the rapidly changing climate.

A Chromebook is a small, lightweight laptop which runs using a Google Chrome operating system. This cutting edge technology opens the door to a new and engaging world that extends effective learning beyond the confines of the classroom. The device will significantly enhance the learning experience for our students both in the classroom and at home.

We pride ourselves in ‘knowing our students’ and a Chromebook for every student will further support individualised learning and feedback, providing 24/7 access to a vast range of exceptional resources that will supplement, but not replace the high quality teaching that Kingsdown values itself on delivering.

Each Chromebook is designed with a battery charge of 8- 10 hours so will efficiently last all day, and the device has a life expectancy of at least 5 years!

We are highly committed to providing the best education possible whilst remaining agile to respond to whatever the world throws at us to ensure uninterrupted learning.

We have seen from the recent lockdown, how crucial it is for all students to always have access to a computing device. We recognise that this allows students to easily and quickly access the wealth of information and resources that Kingsdown students have on hand when in school and provide remarkable benefits to learning.

As a school our commitment to excellence has determined that a well-balanced combination of school and home learning is key to the future success of young people.

We are proud that Kingsdown is the first school in Swindon to successfully embark on this exciting new journey to provide each and every student with a Chromebook.
