Purchasing an iPad and Minimum Specification
RGS Worcester recommends pupils purchase a full size iPad (10.2”) and ensure it comes to school each day in a rugged case. Having an iPad in school each day in a suitable case is a requirement for each pupil so that they can participate in our Digital Learning Programme. The entry level 64gb model is sufficient for the all school apps.
To assist parents in purchasing the right iPad and case, at a competitive price, RGS has developed a partnership with Albion Computers who, via their web portal, offer RGS parents the opportunity to purchase iPads, Insurance, Logitech Crayons and Cases at competitive prices. We have chosen Albion because they share aims and aspirations similar to ours to ensure our learners are properly equipped with the right technology to enhance their learning. However, the School systems can support iPads bought from other suppliers.
iPads purchased via Albion are also automatically enrolled onto the RGS Jamf system to provide all the settings and apps that are required for use in school.
The use of Apple Pencils or Logitech Crayons is evolving at present. The latest generation iPads as offered by Albion are compatible with both devices.
We hope that this information and the partnership with Albion Computers assists parents in choosing an iPad and case for your child but, in the event of a further query, please do not hesitate to contact the IT Team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
