School Calendars

We find it useful to have school term dates and other information on our phones and tablets. Here’s a guide to doing just that (it’s a bit technical, sorry!).

All the calendars have web address that your phone or tablet can understand. Different devices have different ways of configuring the calendars:

iPhone /iPad

  1. Launch the Settings app
  2. Tap on Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  3. Tap on Add Account… under the Mail section
  4. Tap on Other
  5. Tap on Add Subscribed Calendar under the Other section.
  6. Enter or copy a calendar feed URL as displayed below

Mac OS X

  1. Open the Calendar app
  2. Click File then New Calendar Subscription…
  3. Enter the URL (see below) and click Subscribe
