If you use an iPad at home, there is a similar procedure to that of a Mac.

To begin, you will need to download Microsoft Remote Desktop from the iOS App Store and then follow the instructions below:

  1. Set Preferences
    • When you first open the app, you won't see anything so you need to tap on the 3 dots at the top-left and select Settings:

    • On the next screen, tap "Gateways" then "Add Gateway". Input the following information:

    • Remember to tap on Save before continuing.

  2. Create a Connection

    • Now that you have set your preferences, you can create the connection to school by tapping on the + (plus) symbol in the app and click on "Add PC". You'll see a screen similar to the one shown below. Fill in the details as shown:

  3. Connect to School

    • Once the connection has been created, when you open the app you'll see a "School" connection listed. Tapping on this will start the connection to school. You will need to enter your school username (type sp\ before it) and password when prompted.

If you have any problems, please contact us using the form on our contact page and selecting Technical Support from the menu. Alternatively, please contact Mr Sharpe in school.
