BYOD Program

St John’s Grammar School offers a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program for students in Years 7 – 12. Students at the Secondary Campus are able to bring a laptop of their choice for use on the School’s network.

To assist the School in providing the best integration with our student’s learning requirements, if your child will be bringing their own device, we request the following hardware specifications for all BYOD machines:

Minimum Specifications

  • Core M Processor
  • 4GB RAM
  • 128GB SSD Storage
  • 802.11 AC/N WiFi

Whilst these minimum specifications will ensure the capability to run the majority of our software, to allow for your child’s machine to have the maximum lifespan and variation of uses possible, we recommend considering the following specifications when purchasing a machine:

Recommended Specifications

  • Core i5 Processor
  • 8GB RAM
  • 256 GB SSD Storage
