St John’s School has invested in the future of computing and taken teaching into the cloud.
The pupils now have 18 Chromebooks, laptops that use Google’s new online operating system.
The new pieces of kit do not allow software to install, so it is impossible to get a virus.
Headmaster Simon Larter said: “I am very keen that we develop this style of computing in the future.
“I am delighted that we are able to achieve this a little earlier than I was planning.
