Reminder About Important Device Specifications:
Many students may have a device already, but please find below important information for recent enrolments.
The iPad is our preferred device. Full information about this is on our school website here 
We are aware that some students have bought other devices for use at intermediate school. These will be suitable, as long as students know how to use them.
If purchasing a device, the School has special pricing via this link
We also recommend that you keep an eye out for special deals from other retailers.
Any tablet screen must be at least 7.9 inches, but a 10″ screen is preferred for iPads and other tablets.
A mobile phone is not considered by the School to be a suitable primary device for learning, especially with regards to the creation of published work.
