“Infinitely shareable and truly accessible”
“In 2011, with ailing email servers and desktops putting more obstacles than opportunity in the way of students and staff, Devonport School felt it could do better. The leadership team set about on an ambitious plan. After an initial implementation of G Suite for Education, the school introduced around 600 Google Chromebooks, putting more technology than ever before into the hands of students and teachers. The choice was a conscious one, involving the school’s Pupil Premium funding to buy these Chromebooks for any students who couldn’t afford them. “Historically, we bought iPads, but we can buy so many more Chromebooks than iPads, and do so much more as a result”
Ben Forte, Director of the Learning Commons at Devonport School.

“Meets the needs of EVERY classroom”
“After considering a number of options for improving its email, Churston chose the online collaboration and communications suite G Suite for Education, which includes Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar and Google Sites. Since switching to G Suite, email has become a key method of communication between staff, students and parents and the G Suite is extensively used for collaboration in and out of the classroom. Following this success, Churston is now trialling ten Chromebooks with a view to rolling them out more widely to replace the school’s current laptops when they reach end-of-life.”
