Do I need an itunes account to download apps onto an ipad ?

Also, what is the quickest way to download apps onto multiple ipads ? Do I need multiple accounts or can it be done with one account or synchronised in some way ?

You do need iTunes.

If you share the same appleid you can tell your other ipads to download apps automatically from within the itunes settings.

As stated, yes you do need an iTunes/Apple ID.  Use one iTunes account and on the iPads go to:

Settings > iTunes & App Store > Scroll to the section labeled Automatic Downloads and make sure there is a green button next to all three (Music, Apps, Updates).

I haven't used itunes to download apps to multiple ipads. I gather MDM is the way to go to do this.

15 ipads, looking at maybe going via an MDM called Meraki to deploy. Not sure how it's done thought, but I think you can just download apps to each ipad via this.

Although the answers given are feasible, I gather apple configurator is the best method for multiple ipads.

Apple Configurator IS an MDM application. The acronym MDM simply means multiple device management.

I was thinking of MDM as in mobile device management using tools like Cisco's Meraki
