The Impact

Coombe Academy Trust has been using Chromebooks over the last 7 years to greatly enhance the availability and access to IT resources in every lesson, with over 3,000 devices already in use by our sudents and teachers across the Trust.

As of September 2024, both Coombe Boys' School & Coombe Girls' School will be fully 1:1, meaning all students have their own Chromebook.

We are also proud that our primary schools also heavily use Chromebooks with their students and staff.

Skills Developed

Across the board, students report increased confidence in typing, computing and digital literacy.

What are the students saying? 

“Chromebooks help with lessons to research and are easy to use when writing full paragraphs. The time difference is huge.”

“It makes the lessons more interesting and is useful for research. It is also a great help when it comes to remembering due dates and the like.”

“I am happy using Chromebooks in school because it can be a faster and easier way to work and gather more information.”

“The Chromebook keeps me very organised and it allows me to ask for help on the stream.”

I like using our Chromebooks to do Kahoot quizzes, as they test your knowledge in a really fun way.

I like being able to work on documents as a whole class, and all be able to edit it at the same time.

I find it useful to view the slides on Google Classroom, it is easier than looking at the board”
