Empower pupils to achieve excellence with 1:1 devices
that do more than the norm

If school budgets are tight, we offer a great range of everyday devices that offer all the functionality needed for studying core subjects. But when more performance and flexibility is needed, we've got a great range of options too. 

Here we've showcased just a few of our premium device options. They're ideal for older students who may need more processing power to tackle complex work.  Or for students of all ages who'd benefit from extra functionality. Like bigger and brighter displays; the ability to convert into different form factors, or interaction using touch or pen.

iPad Pro with M1 chip. The ultimate iPad experience

There’s an iPad to suit every need and budget. But if you’re looking for a 1:1 solution that empowers high performing pupils to go even further, this is it. Introducing iPad Pro, now supercharged by the Apple M1 chip.

Combine it with Apple Pencil4 and Apple Magic Keyboard4 and you’ve got the ultimate iPad experience.

iPad Pro with pen

M1 chip. Power and performance in every student’s hands

The fastest and most powerful device of its kind, iPad Pro turns the 1:1 experience on its head. In class or at home, students can do more, especially in subjects where powerful apps make a big difference, like music, design, media and art.

iPad Pro camera

Liquid Retina display and pro camera for amazing visual projects

Capture professional quality photos and videos that take photography and film making projects to the next level. Students can then see everything with true-to-life colour and fine detail on the pixel-perfect Liquid Retina display.

iPad Pro Keyboard

Add Magic Keyboard4 and Apple Pencil4 for endless possibilities

Apple Pencil transforms iPad Pro into an immersive drawing canvas, whilst its precision and accuracy make for the most natural writing experience. Magic Keyboard, with built-in trackpad and back-lit keys, gives new ways to work and is ideal for essays and written projects.

iPad Pro Battery

Portable and light, with all day battery life and blazing fast connectivity

iPad Pro is still thin and light with all-day battery life3, making it as portable as it is powerful. With super-fast Wi-Fi 6 and 5G cellular options, students can connect to the fastest available network wherever they’re working, whilst the Thunderbolt port maximises speedy connectivity to accessories.
