IT Helpdesk

The IT Helpdesk provides friendly assistance to students and staff. Students can drop in anytime and visit us in the Gibson Centre.

Students are expected to bring a laptop to school every day (fully charged of course!) to assist with their learning. This can be either a Windows or an Apple device, although it is worth noting that current education research tells us that the best device for learning has a touchscreen and a stylus (a digital pen). Devices like this this lead to an increase in recall and cognition (remembering and understanding).

The school’s IT partner, Cyclone Computers, sells appropriate laptops along with accessories and an insurance scheme. This can be accessed via their BYOD site:

Students pay an annual software fee which then allows them to download Microsoft Office to their laptops (this applies to up to 5 home computers and 5 tablets). Students also have access to the Adobe suite of software.
