BYOD - Bring Your Own Device

You are welcome to bring your own device to school, connect to our wi-fi and use the internet to help with your learning.

All internet use is filtered for safety, and logged against your username.

In particular, we're asking that, wherever possible, all students bring their own internet-capable device to school to help them with their learning.

While our network has been designed so it will work with pretty much any device, if you're buying something new you need to bear in mind that we're a Windows school using Office 365. So a Windows laptop is best. One with a touchscreen and a pen/stylus is even better.

We've partnered with Harvey Norman to get you really good deals and support. Here's a copy of their 2018 flyer, if you buy from them (and you certainly don't have to) you'll need to show them evidence that you're a Lincoln High School family - either a current student e-mail address or a letter of acceptance of a place.
