One to One Laptop Scheme

Great Marlow School is delighted to announce we will be running a One to One laptop scheme for March 2021. We are working with last years partner, EduTech. The scheme is open to all students at Great Marlow School.

The device on offer is fully compatible with the school’s IT systems and comes with Windows 10 pre-installed. MS Office 365 is applied for free via the ‘Free Office 365 for students‘ scheme. GMS believes having a personal laptop/tablet device significantly increases access to technology for students, which brings many benefits for learning: in turn this greatly motivates, engages and increases the understanding of complex ideas. At the moment it is only a requirement for KS4 students to bring in a laptop/notebook as part of their studies.
