Google Chromebook 1:1 Device Scheme 2023/24


Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School currently runs a scheme to enable 1:1 access to technology for its students. In common with a number of other schools, this scheme brings benefits to every student and enhances the educational experience that our students enjoy.

A 1:1 device scheme provides individual access to a digital device for each student in order to access the Internet, digital course materials and digital textbooks. 

This scheme has proved to be invaluable during the current coronavirus pandemic as it has allowed us to continue to provide online learning to our students efficiently through Google Classroom.  It has enabled us to support our students remotely through the setting of work, online assessment and the provision of feedback to keep them on track. 

We have been using Google Classroom successfully for over five years which, in conjunction with the full set of G-Suite apps, has improved the way students and staff communicate and collaborate across the school. We have invested in a new school-wide wireless network to allow students to use their own devices and also we have installed software which allows timetables and other information to be transferred digitally to students, providing relevant information at their fingertips.

The Chromebook Scheme was launched in 2018 and we now have over 1000 students with access to a device for use in school and at home. We have realised the many opportunities the technology has opened up for research, collaboration and student engagement. This is why we are extending the scheme to our new Year 7 students in addition to those current students who do not have personal access to a device. 

Chromebooks help organise students' workload, support communication and provide better opportunities to continue their studies at home. Individual access to technology is not something that should happen in a few rooms in a school, it should be for everyone, everywhere and at any time. Young people are used to having access to the Internet at all times and school should not be an exception. We would like our students to have easy access to a wide range of high quality resources, wherever they are, and to study and research using their own initiative. 

What the scheme entails is the requirement for parents, where possible, to provide a Chromebook for their son or daughter to use at school. The school’s commitment is to maintain the ICT infrastructure, including maintenance of the network and to provide the necessary technical support and resources to ensure the scheme runs successfully. 

We would not wish any student to be excluded from the scheme on the grounds of cost and in cases of financial difficulty please contact Mr S Davison (Finance Manager), in confidence, as assistance may be available -

For parents of students in receipt of the Pupil Premium, financial support will be made available to cover the vast majority of the cost of the 1:1 Chromebook scheme.

In return for this investment, students would be provided with a new Google Chromebook for use at home and at school, a protective carry case, 3 year warranty, software and accidental damage insurance, in addition to a Google Management and E-safety license.  A full breakdown of the cost of the package can be found on the following page.  

Clearly this is a major part of our ICT provision by making more effective use of technology across all subjects and it does need the support of the vast majority of our parents to enable it to be effective. 

We believe this scheme provides a number of benefits for both students and parents. These include: 


  • Easy student-teacher workflow within a safe environment
  • Large numbers of computers that can be managed centrally
  • Excellent collaboration tools
  • Works seamlessly with Google Apps for Education
  • Options for comprehensive insurance and warranty
  • Choice of payment methods
  • We can manage the devices securely, offering the best levels of online safety


Please contact us via if you have any further questions.

ASUS Chromebook Flip CR1 is geared to unleash student creativity and potential with robust and attentive design. The ruggedised construction endures the stresses and strains of everyday use and ASUS Antibacterial Guard1 protects student from harmful organisms in the classroom or outdoors. Featuring an easy-to-service modular design and zero-touch enrollment in IT networks, Flip CR1 is also a smart investment for education environments of all types. It supports up to WiFi 6 and 4G LTE2 for fast connectivity, has a garaged stylus3 and dual cameras for versatile experiences, and long-lasting battery life for uninterrupted learning — making it the student laptop to beat.

Ultimate rugged design, All-round protection


ASUS Chromebook Flip CR1 is engineered to withstand everyday knocks, bumps, drops and spills without damage. So, whether it’s dropped from a classroom desk or the dining-room table, ASUS Chromebook Flip CR1 is built to keep on going.

All four exterior edges and corners are protected by a tough rubber bumper, which reduces the impact of physical shocks to ensure critical components are always safe and sound.


The gap between the edges of the keycaps and the keyboard surround is minimised to prevent the keys from being pried out.

Safe to hold

A rubber bar on the base provides a sturdy support for ASUS Chromebook Flip CR1 while also making it easier to grip when carrying — a thoughtful design detail that reduces the risk of fumbles or slips that lead to drops.




US Military Grade Durability

Classrooms can be tough, but ASUS Chromebook Flip CR1 is tougher! Built to surpass demanding US military-grade MIL-STD-810H durability standards5, it’s also rigorously tested to pass stringent ASUS quality tests. It can withstand occasional drops of up to 120 cm — more than standard desk height — and the hinge and I/O ports are fully tested to endure the stresses and strains of everyday use.

Common Questions


  • What is the excess charged for a claim under the insurance policy? There is no excess for the first and any subsequent claims for each device on the policy.  Please ready policy wording for full details. There is a claim limit of 2 claims per 12 months to prevent mistreated devices.
  • Who is the insured party under the AD policy: parents or the school? The school is the insured party to allow us to process the claim on your behalf, and the insurance covers the equipment, identified by serial number. If you leave the school this can be transferred to a personal name but would be subject to an administration fee.
  • What happens in the event of a claim? As a school, we will normally process the claim on your behalf. There are exceptions to this, for example, during school holidays, where it may be easier for you to make the claim as we have limited staff on site for deliveries and collections during these periods. Where possible and if we are processing the claim for you, then we may be able to provide you with a loan unit for term time on site school use only so your son/daughter is not disadvantaged in any way. Devices purchased outside of the scheme would be your responsibility to claim under any warranty or insurance you may have purchased.
