Laptop Options

Fairhills offers students the option to purchase a laptop direct through the school’s provider – Learning with Technologies (LWT) or a BYOD device.


Laptop purchases are a direct arrangement between you (the Parents/Carers), and our laptop supplier – Learning with Technologies (LWT) via the LWT order portal:


If you wish to source and supply your own device (BYOD) please purchase a Windows based laptop with the requirements stated below.

Please DO NOT purchase: Chromebooks, iPads and Android as these devices are not compatible with our network and/or learning requirements.

Make sure there is no Linux software on the laptop as this is not compatible with the school’s network.

You will also need to put an anti-virus/malware program on your device.
