ICT facilities/Bring Your Own Device
(Subject to change during Covid 19 Pandemic)
The Sixth form may use the computers in the Sixth Form Study Area, the Learning Resource Centre and any room in the school during their study time having gained permission from the relevant teacher. In addition we also have a number of laptops available for use from the Sixth Form Office. The Atrium & Dining Hall will also be available for non-timetabled independent study periods.
Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic a privilege of the 6th Form will be the opportunity for students to bring their own devices (laptops) to school for use in study time and lessons if students are not part of the school chromebook scheme. However, students must be aware that in using their own devices in school, DCHS IT Support will take information on your device and give access to the school wifi in order to track usage and to maintain your compliance with the school Safe internet User Policy.
The Sixth Form Study Area
This room is for the whole of the Sixth Form. It needs to be respected as a facility. You are expected to work in this room during timetabled study periods, and can use the room to relax and socialise at break and or lunchtimes. It should have an adult and productive atmosphere. Please help to maintain this by acting in a mature way, recognising where food is consumed and keeping the room tidy. Each form class will be responsible on a rota basis for maintaining the cleanliness of the work spaces.
The Learning Resource Centre (LRC)
The LRC is open for Sixth Form use when available.
The Atrium/Dining Hall
The open Atrium has seating throughout the day. These can be used by sixth form for a relaxing chat, whilst hopefully accessing the serving facilities or vending machines for refreshment. Once again you are expected to act in a mature way in this area as it has open access for the whole school, therefore appropriate behaviour is required.
We expect students to also be working in this area. It is also the first contact any guests will have with students and we want it to be a positive one. You are expected to be acting as role models for the Lower School. THE ATRIUM IS A NO PHONE ZONE
