Our school

Information for those providing their own iPad

Years 7 – 11

Please note that students in Lower School have no option to provide their own personal device for use in school.

Years 12 – 13

Students in Sixth Form are able to provide their own device for use in school. If you choose this option the iPad will need to be loaded with the school’s management system so that it can access the Wi-Fi system here in school and an iPad consent form will be required to make this happen.

Please complete our electronic iPad consent form and put NEW YEAR 12 or 13 and OWN IPAD in the box where it asks for the Form Group. Once this form has been received by the iPads Administrator authorisation will be given to the IT Services team to connect the iPad.

Personal iPads are not eligible to use the school’s repair service. Assistance with general problems relating to Wi-Fi access in school can be given by the IT Services team, but all other problems would need to be resolved by home.

The iPads in our school scheme come with an apps bundle that contains core apps that they can use for lessons. These are not available for students providing their own iPads. However, students do get the ability to install Office for use at home and on up to 5 computers. They can do this by signing into using their school email address and then clicking install Office button. Please note that student emails are only issued after the student has joined us.

Students can purchase apps directly from the App Store as they require them. A lot of these are now provided free with the newer iPads and some are no longer as expensive as they used to be. For a list of core apps, please see Further Information For Parents. Please note that the list provided is mainly for students in Lower School. Sixth Form students study less subjects and may not require all of the core apps listed.
