About the Scheme

Over the last few years, technology has moved on leaps and bounds and profound new opportunities for education have emerged. Communication is changing, methods of learning and working are evolving, and if we want our young people to be prepared for the opportunities and challenges they will face, we at the academy must evolve too.

Children spend a lot of time at school, but the learning that takes place at home is also extremely important to their future success. New technology, such as tablet devices, gives us the ability to make learning more engaging and more effective in the classroom, and the opportunity to extend learning beyond it, out into the community.

Information for parents/carers of incoming Year 7  – September 2017 

We recently held an information evening for Year 6 students and parents/carers about our iPads for Learning scheme. The details of what the scheme entails, and, most importantly how to sign up and become a part of it are located within the presentation below.

We understand that after reviewing this information you may have more questions to ask. If this is the case please do not hesitate to contact us again.
