Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Scheme

Students joining our Sixth Form will require their own device, which can be connected to the Bloxham School network, to aid their studies.

Student Personal Laptop

Please ensure that your device meets the minimum specification below, this means you will meet the correct security levels that are in place when you connect to the Bloxham network. Unfortunately, if your device does not meet the recommended standards, you will not be able to connect. We recommend Windows 10 devices as some teaching resources will be only available on the Windows 10 store. We will support Apple Mac devices, but advise that these devices may be restricted.

Requirements

To allow your device to connect to the Bloxham School network you must enrol onto the school Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution which will allow you to access school resources and, most importantly, install Bloxham's anti-virus and threat protection software, Sophos End Point Advance. Without this software installed, you won't be allowed on the network.

Bloxham Laptop Shop

Our laptop shop lists recommended devices. All devices purchased through the shop will include a two-year next business day warranty and accidental damage cover, which will be supported by Bloxham School's IT Department. Once you have purchased your device, it will be shipped directly to Bloxham School ready for collection on your first day.
