Lost iPads

Accidental damage is generally covered by ACS International Schools. However, ACS International Schools does not cover lost or misplaced iPads. If an iPad is lost, a charge of up to £400 will be made. Deliberate damage to iPads or damage through misuse will result in the cost of repair or replacement of the iPad being charged. All iPads are provided with a safety cover which must not be removed. Lost covers are replaced at the expense of the user.

A set of text books is loaned to each student. At the end of the year, or earlier for transferring students, the books must be returned in the condition in which they were issued, allowance being made for fair wear and tear. A charge will be made for textbooks/library books lost or damaged beyond the accepted standard.


A hot meal cooked in school and various ‘Grab & Go’ items are available as an option. Students are also allowed to bring a packed lunch. (ACS parents can visit our intranet to find out about making payments).
