As we are an online school, students will need to be able to use the VLE, join tutorial classes by video conferencing and type and submit assignments electronically.

No special hardware or software is required but to join the school all students will need access to:

  • A reliable internet connection.
  • A desktop or laptop computer or other device, capable of running a recent Chrome, Microsoft Edge, FireFox, Safari or Safari Mobile browser.
  • An inbuilt or plug-in webcam and microphone for video conferencing.
  • To use a handheld device, it must run iOS version 12.2+ or Android version 6.0+.
  • A keyboard and mouse/touchpad/touchscreen to prepare assignments with MS Word or compatible software (e.g. Google Docs).
