Bombay School - Our Best Always - Ake Runga - Years 0 to 8

School leavers

During your time at Bombay School you will have collected a large number of documents, slides, photos, and mail. Most of this will be stored in your Google account – either in your Google drive or within GMail. This letter will explain what will happen to that content once you leave Bombay School.

Your School Google Account

Your Bombay School Google account ({YourName} will remain active for 6 months after you leave Bombay School. It is your responsibility to copy or move any documents, slides, and mail from this Google account to another location during that year. Six months after you leave Bombay School this account will be deleted. This will delete all files from your drive, all mail, and all other application data. Please make sure you use this time to save the files that you wish to keep.

How do you move the files you want?

The easiest way to save the files you want is to transfer them to another account within Google. This could be an account setup as part of your new school or a personal account. To setup a new personal Google account go to . This new account will give you a new Drive, and a new GMail address. Once you open a new personal account you can then login to your school account and share the documents with this new account. Remember to make your new account the owner of the document so that it is no longer tied to your Bombay School account. 

Mail that you have received to your Bombay School address, and that you wish to keep, can be forwarded to your new Google GMail address. 

Please note the age restrictions on setting up a new account within Google. Please talk to your parents before you do this.

Alternatively the files you want can be downloaded to the drive on another computer or to a memory stick. 

Un-enrol your Chromebook from Bombay School

Your Chromebook should have been enrolled into the school’s domain when it first came to school. If it has been you should see the message "This device is managed by Bombay School” at the bottom of the login screen. If you do see this then the school will need to un-enrol your Chromebook before it can be enrolled at your next school or used with a personal Google account. 

To have your device un-enrolled please 

1. See Mr Petersen on 15 December 2020 or

2. Email the Chromebook serial number to 

The serial number will be found underneath the Chromebook. If you can, please send a photo of the serial number to avoid any mistakes.

Your Chromebook will need to remain connected to the Internet for this change to occur.

Once your chromebook has been taken off the system (deprovisioned), please do the following:

  1. Press Esc + Samsung Chromebook Refresh key + Power. A yellow exclamation point (!) is displayed.
  2. Press Ctrl + D to begin dev mode, then Enter. A red exclamation point is displayed.
  3. Press Ctrl + D. The Chromebook deletes its local data, returning to its initial state. This takes approximately 15 minutes.
  4. You will need to re-add your home network to this machine.
