Digital Technologies

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.

Our school has it's only high quality BMX pump track that our students have access to use during break times. 

We ensure that students follow the safety rules when using the track to limit injuries as best we can.

School provides helmets and high end BMX bikes for our students.

We do not allow private bikes on the track during school time as we can not quarantee they are safe.

Students must wear shoes and a helment when on the track.

The track is available to our community outside of school hours.
