Firstly, please note that the iPad comes preloaded with a range of useful apps, go here to explore their functionality.

The following list contains the required St Leonard’s College Core iPad apps for students in Year 5 to 9 and will remain very useful for students in years 10 and 12 who have an iPad.

It is expected that families will use Family Sharing or purchase iTunes cards to cover the cost of these required apps for students (all prices correct at time pf publishing).

Click the apps below to be taken to the iTunes Store to download or buy the apps (it is great to do this on the iPad in Safari):

Students are able to download Microsoft Office 365 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) for free if desired, click here for more information about signing in with your STL account to gain access to Office 365.
Similarly, students are able to sign in to the Google Suite of productivity tools (Docs, Sheets, Slides) using their STL login details if desired. Click here for more information.
