Before acquiring a device to use at school the parent/guardian and student should be aware of the school’s specifications. These specifications can be found in the Quicklinks on your right.
Warranty & Accidental Damage Protection
Laptops are expensive technical devices and they do break down and can be damaged, especially in the hands of teenagers. It is vital to ensure a fast turnaround for repairs when the need arises.
We highly recommend every device has Accidental Damage Protection (ADP) insurance with Next Business Day (NBD) warranty. You may have the option of adding ADP to your home and contents insurance policy. However, be sure that it covers the device 24/7 and while away from your home.
The school offers first-level diagnostic support for student owned laptops at our ICT help desk. However, warranty, security, insurance and maintenance is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
Anti-virus software is a compulsory requirement, although the in-built anti-virus software in both Windows and MacOs is sufficiant . Laptops require anti-virus software to connect to the school network.
