Third Form Laptop Scheme (2020-21)

New students beginning Third Form in September 2020 will receive a school laptop.

This will be charged for at a cost of £110 per term. At the end of Fifth Form, the laptop will be owned by you. This is a new scheme put in place to offer our students a higher specification laptop ideally suited for both classroom and remote learning. The device comes with a digital pen which offers additional e-learning capabilities. A three year warranty is also included and offers peace of mind for accidental damage.

Sixth Form Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Laptop 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.
