Bring Your Own Device
Since September 2013 we have been running a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Scheme for the Sixth Form – a project that allows all students to bring their own mobile device into school so that they can use them in lessons and during private study to access a wide range of electronic learning materials and facilitate learning.
As a school we strive to support the needs of each of our students and encourage the development of individual skills and talents. The school’s approach aims to develop the whole person and successfully equip each student for the challenges of life. We are constantly looking for ways to enhance learning opportunities and it has become increasingly clear that access to their own device will enable them to work in a more personalised way ensuring that they are best prepared for their future. Given that post-‐16 students follow a more personalised curriculum, we have decided the Sixth Form students should be allowed to choose which device (if any) that they would like to use (this is not a compulsory scheme, students will be able to use any brand of device or operating system that they see fit and there are PCs available in the Sixth Form LRC for any student not wishing to bring in their own device).
