Our school has the resources for our students to be able to learn in a 1:1 device environment. However, as we wish our students to be well rounded learners we blend our day between device based learning and non device activities.
We also have a MAKERSPACE creative learning room.
In this room we hold a full range of art and craft items along with multiple robotics programmes including electronic Lego.
