Software for devices 

Students are required to have certain software on their personal technology devices. This includes some form of Office suite, if they are in either an Art or ICT class, the Adobe suite.

From the student portal students can access the following software for free:

  • A copy of Microsoft Office (For PC and Mac)
  • Adobe Creative Cloud (Including Photoshop and other such software)
  • Google Workspace applications

For Antivirus solutions we recommend using your devices built in Antivirus. We advise against using any third-party antivirus software. (AVG, Norton, etc)

Support for devices 

If your child encounters problems with his or her Personal Technology Device they can bring the device to our friendly IT Support staff and they will assess the problem and give advice on how to find a solution. Most of the time this will lead to the problem being solved on the spot. However, our on-site IT Support team can only deal with software issues.

This means that any cases of physical damage or hardware failure must be dealt with by the manufacturer. If the device is out of warranty we recomend taking the device to a computer repair shop.
