During the Primary years we believe it is crucial to develop skills related to the use of Information Communications Technology (ICT). For this reason, your child will have two 40 minute lessons each week, in each year group. In the younger classes, these will be separate lessons, with the older classes we may run the periods together, depending on timetable access to computer labs.
The school benefits from two dedicated computer laboratories, whilst in the Primary school we have a class suite of laptop computers which we configure as either a classroom ‘laboratory’ set, or alternatively we spread them around the classrooms to afford greater mobility and ‘in-context’ use.
As students enter the Secondary School, in Year 7, they will continue with a programme of two, 80 minute, lessons per week, throughout the year.
