Not defending the need for all year 7s to have iPads, but yes you can store homework on an iPad. I write and store a lot of documents on mine. It is possible to log onto the school Internet service and use the iPad as a vitual PC . Whole books can be stored on them. The range of apps available is immense and they can be hugely beneficial to children with special needs.
