    If by profiles you mean accounts, then yes. You can set up numerous user accounts.

    OMG that was quick, thank you..... I think you are correct it would be different accounts as its different schools, but is it not like windows where as different schools need different profiles ?? I will be using Apple Configurator to set up the iPads

    Windows has different user ids as well and that's what you'll be doing in OS X.
    Go to System Preferences (in the dock), Click on Users and Groups. Click on the pad lock on the lower left corner (if its showing locked.)

    From there you can create a new account which will be completely separate from the original account, so if you hook up an IP to that account, it will be different from the original account.
