TECHNOLOGY  FOR LEARNING

We are asking all students to bring in a laptop or tablet to their lessons. We feel that having a device in lessons will help us cover material more efficiently in a more meaningful and enjoyable way. It will give us flexibility to blend traditional learning with online work so that whatever the circumstances, students have access to the best possible experience.

Further details of the ‘Technology Ready Scheme’ can be found via this link. You can also find an enquiry form for and question you may have or advice you may need.
