iPad Information for Students

Students in Years 9 - 11:

All students in Year 9 will have the opportunity to get a 32GB Education iPad, a case, a stylus and a range of apps. Students must take care of it and follow guidelines, especially keeping it in the case, or you maye have to pay for damage/repairs.

We will create a Managed Apple ID for you, giving you 200GB of free cloud storage space. We will also download a variety of school apps directly to your iPad and make other apps available using our own self-service app portal.

We will periodically review logbook trackers/academic summaries to allow some students additional apps, access and freedom, if you demonstrate responsible behaviour and a good attitude to school rules and expectations.

Students in Years 12 - 13:

You will need to create your own Apple ID. The best way to do this is to try and buy a free app, then you will be prompted to create an Apple ID but you won't need to use a credit card.

You will need to download the following free apps:

  • Books - For downloading books & PDFs
  • Keynote - For creating presentations (like PowerPoint)
  • Pages - For creating documents (like Word)
