In 2018, Apple introduced new compliance rules for apps on the iOS App Store. Under these rules, Apple requires all schools to host their app in an iOS developer account, registered under the contact copyright holders name.
The current cost of an iOS developer account is AUD $149/year. You can register your account here.

Once Apple has confirmed and set up your account, you’ll be able to invite firstname.lastname@example.org as an admin to your account, and provide the following permissions to the Developer Resources:
