At St Cuthbert’s, students are required to bring their own device from Year 5 – 13. Devices are used at specific times in the classroom to enhance and support the learning experience.   

2022 Devices

•  Students in Years 5–9 use iPads with a keyboard and Apple Pencil.

• Year 10–13 students use laptops. Apple MacBooks are the preferred option. Windows laptops can be used. Please email [email protected] if you are wanting to use a Windows laptop.

• If you are starting in Year 9, and do not already own an iPad, there is an option to pay a per-term-rate for the use of an iPad, keyboard and pencil. This will be useful for families who do not wish to purchase an iPad for one year only.

Specifications for all devices will be published here soon, along with details of the one year option to pay a per term rate for the use of an iPad for one year. We strongly advise that any parents who are looking to purchase a new device – iPad or MacBook – do not do so before 1 November.

Please contact Mr Andy Parker, Director of Information and Learning Technologies, if you have any queries: [email protected].


Students from Year 7 to Year 13 purchase stationery from OfficeMax.

2022 Stationery lists are not currently available. Please check back here in November, 2021 for details.
