Learning environment

From Year 7 to Year 11, all students utilise their individual iPads, and Sixth Form students have the flexibility to select a device that aligns with their specific subjects and learning needs. We maintain stringent online content filtering to ensure student safety, while also imparting essential skills for safe online practices and encouraging responsible technology usage. Classrooms feature interactive smart boards that encourage screen sharing, creating versatile learning environments.
