WIndows 10 S on existing hardware

Does anyone know if it will be possible to update existing computers to Windows 10 S? I work in a school and we have a bank of unmanaged Windows 8 laptops. Upgrading them to Windows 10 S, and managing them through the educational version of inTune is of interest to me.

    <p>According to Microsoft, Windows 10 S will be free to schools on current genuine Windows Pro PCs. However, I'm not sure if Windows 8 devices are included in that criteria. </p>

    <p>Think so. Any genuine 'windows pro' version can be upgraded.</p>

    <p>The laptops were all cheap, and will have home version of Windows on them! I have contacted Microsoft Education here in the UK, and they are waiting for confirmation on whether this is possible with the licencing the school has.</p>
