Recommended IT equipment for pupils

All pupils must bring their own laptop.

The choice is at parents’ discretion but we would recommend a Windows 10 based laptop which will offer the greatest compatibility with the systems and software used within the School.

Apple laptops, installed with the latest OSX Software may also be used but will offer less compatibility with the School’s systems and software.

Online learning and digitally sharing information are an essential part of school life. St Edwards would advocate the use of Windows tablet devices. These will encompass a touch screen tablet as well as a keyboard and Stylus to be able to achieve the Windows functionality that best matches school systems as well as being able to collaborate and learn from anywhere within the safety and security of the school environment, with access to their peers, teaching and support staff.

These devices can fit a multitude of budgets, some example models are below.  You may want to take advantage of the fact that the Microsoft store offers a 10% discount for all students in full time education: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/store/b/student.

A copy of Microsoft Office 365 Professional is available free to download for all pupils once they have joined the School. This is also available for Mac users.

Pupils must also bring headphones for their laptop.

All laptops must be configured to regularly check for and install operating system updates and a good quality anti-virus application must be installed and set up for automatic updates. A free version of Sophos antivirus software for most operating systems is available from https://www.sophos.com/en-us/ products/free-tools.aspx

The School cannot provide a repair service for damaged or non-functioning devices and can only provide basic advice for the resolution of software or hardware problems.
