Year 11 to Year 13 - BYOD Laptop

Larger laptops (15 inch) will typically be more useful at the senior levels, though some students may still prefer the weight and portability advantages of smaller laptops (13 inch). Both Windows and Apple laptops will be suitable, however the limited functionality offered by Chromebooks means they are not appropriate.
Laptops should have a minimum of 4GB RAM and 128GB storage.
Students studying Music or Visual Arts will benefit from higher performing laptops. There has historically been a preference for Apple laptops because they are well equipped and previous software would only operate on Apple computers. Windows based laptops will be suitable for Music and Art as long as they are similarly equipped to Apple laptops (similar processors, RAM and storage).
In order to access the School’s wireless network, all laptops are required to have a wireless network card that supports WPA2 encryption and is 802.11n or ac.
