We are passionate about providing exceptional teaching of ICT and other technologies in our school through different subjects.
Pupils use digital cameras to support their learning in art and design;keyboards and associated software in music; tablet technology in day-to-day lessons and in our new Secondary library,students explore new technologies in reading books electronically.
We currently have a tablet of one to every two pupils. All this is in addition to day-to-day ICT lessons in the Secondary school or in Primary classrooms by using different equipment and software in different areas of learning.
We aim to give our students an education which will both help prepare and support them in today’s increasingly competitive and technology rich global economy and to become confident users and creators of different digital content.
Furthermore,our school is very well equipped with interactive whiteboards,laptops and ICT learning bays. From Early Years and Key Stage 1 our students use technology by video conferencing to support learning.Our School Council,for example use these facilities to link up with other GEMS’ pupils to discuss and explore educational themes.
We train all of our teachers on Microsoft and Apple Technologies and Innovative Teaching Practices through different programs to enable them to incorporate technology in all aspects of their work with students.
Our aim is to ensure that all staff are sufficiently trained and confident in using the equipment we have to support all students’ learning.
Our Boarding Facility has similar technology thereby ensuring boarding students have access to such equipment beyond the school day. We aim to ensure that your children taught by us today, are sufficiently equipped and confident to be able to use the technologies of tomorrow.
