EGA Chromebook Programme

As an EGA student your child is entitled to a Chromebook on loan for the duration of their time at the Academy. We loan Chromebooks as a means to help make learning more accessible and to enable our students to manage some of their own learning at home. The best way to achieve this is to have a suitable device and a broadband internet connection at home.

A Chromebook on Loan

This device would be kept at home to support your child's learning. They can use the Chromebook to help them complete their homework, access any catch-up resources that teachers share with them, and provide a gateway to the World Wide Web - enabling your child to independently develop their learning further. There is no charge to borrow this device. However, you will have to pay if the Chromebook is stolen, lost or damaged. You will be required to sign a contract to this effect, which we will talk through with you.

Supporting Learning at Home

To help your child make the most of their device,we have online resources such as Ark SPArk - which collates resources into one place to match activities with learning in school - and online portals including Show My Homework, Sparx, and Seneca Leaning.
