Core app’s

This is a list of the core apps required for using an iPad in school. There will be additional app’s that teachers in particular subjects will ask students to install as and when they need them. For Sixth Form students providing their own devices for use in school they may not require all these core app’s as the number of subjects studied is lower than that in Lower School.
