Year 7 Students
All Year 7 students from September 2023 onwards are required to have an iPad for their learning.
Year 7 2023 iPad Scheme:
New students joining us in Year 7 are able to join the Year 7 2023 Scheme (see below) as a late joiner, however, the Direct Debit set up link in the letter is no longer active, and the cost to purchase the iPad at the end (in September 2025) will be higher than those who started on time.
If you wish to join this scheme please read the paperwork carefully as by signing up to the scheme you are agreeing to its terms and conditions. All we ask is that if you do take up this late offer that you commit to making the full contributions across remaining time the scheme has to run.
If you are happy to proceed on this basis please email the Learning Foundation at email@example.com and she will set the Direct Debit up manually for you. Please make clear this is the Year 7 2023 Programme at £13 a month with payments ending in May 2030. When your Direct Debit is confirmed to the school, a brand-new iPad and case* will be provided to your child.
*Please note that the Red Kite Learning Trust do not provide screen protectors as the school issued case is deemed protection enough. By taking up a late place on this scheme you will not receive a screen protector, although one can be purchased from the school via the online payment system.
If you do not wish to join the school scheme then you can provide your own device instead. However, you will need to agree to allow the device to be managed as if it were a school iPad, and under the agreement that the school rules regarding iPads is are adhered to. Where these terms are broken, the use of a personal device will no longer be allowed and a Leave at School iPad will be issued instead. If you wish to know more about Leave at school iPads please email RSiPads@rs.rklt.co.uk
If you choose to provide your own iPad you are not able to repair your device through the school’s repair service which is for school iPads only. (NOTE: From September 2024 onwards Year 7 students will not be allowed to use a personal device in school).
