Laptops, iPads & Tablets
Sixth Formers are expected to have access to a digital device in all lessons. This may be their own laptop, iPad or tablet. Use is at the discretion/request of the teacher. Students are not allowed to access their phones during lessons. Year 13 may use their phones for work purposes only in the Mezzanine. Boys are also expected to be able to access homework that is set electronically and communication sent via their school email address.
The guidance and rules indicated in the school’s “Acceptable Use of ICT Policy” also applies to the use of laptops, iPads and tablets. There are no facilities at school for charging devices and Sixth Form students should charge equipment at home. If a student uses their own laptop, iPad or tablet in school, they must use the school Wi-Fi.
We would also wish to stress that it is vital that students maintain the ability to write quickly as this is the way they are examined.
