Program Summary

Here you'll find an outline of this site and all of the information within.

Each student must bring a device, typically a laptop, to undertake her studies.

    • Tablets, phones and netbooks are not acceptable devices.
    • Laptops and some hybrid 2-in-1 devices are acceptable, but the device must meet minimum specifications.
    • The College has organised an optional Purchase Portal to provide discounts for buying new devices.

A device repair strategy is required.

    • Either a warranty, insurance or backup device, minimising interruption to studies if something happens.
    • SSC IT Staff are available to provide support but cannot perform hardware repairs.

Software required for studies

    • Microsoft Office and other packages are provided free
    • Installations are available once your daughter commences at the College.
    • Antivirus is required for older Windows devices (Windows 7/8/8.1). Windows 10 devices should use built in Windows Defender antivirus, and macOS doesn't need an antivirus if you're vigilant.
    • The College uses OneDrive as the file system and recommends students to use this to keep their work automatically backed up.
    • The College provides internet filtering services whilst on campus but not in your home. There are ways you can set up home filtering.
