At St Bede’s Catholic College, we are offering a 1:1 Device Scheme for our Sixth Form students that enables our students to enhance their learning experience.
We are always looking for ways to improve outcomes for students and provide modern, innovative access to learning resources. The use of technology and ICT is embedded across subjects with resources such as online textbooks, assessment and revision, academic papers and research, and home learning all taking place on a device.
To ensure that our students have continual and reliable access to these resources, we are offering sixth form students and parents the opportunity to buy a device through this 1:1 Device Scheme. By purchasing through the scheme, families are able to take advantage of economy of scale, discounts against the high street, a comprehensive insurance and warranty service, and spread payments across a 12 or 18 month period if preferred to purchasing outright. St Bede's Catholic College has partnered with C-Learning and Edde Finance to deliver the scheme to students and families.
We have chosen to make Chromebook devices available to purchase through the scheme, as they are reliable, have an extremely good battery life, are robust and secure, and will last for the next 6 or 7 years which will help see your child through the next steps in their education journey beyond their time at St Bede’s Catholic College.
Please note that this scheme is only open to students in the sixth form from September 2023, and it is limited to one device per student.
To place an order for a device, parents/carers need to access the portal where they can select the device and choose a payment plan. Parents/carers will create an account on the portal as part of the ordering process.
Please note that you are only able to order one device per student, and that this scheme is only open to students in the sixth form. Please do not purchase devices for students in Years 7 to 11.
The portal has now closed for new orders. If a second ordering period is made available, families and students will be made aware of this.
