Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
At present all pupils in 1st Year are timetabled for one class of Information Technology each week, to learn skills in the use of word processing: Spreadsheets, Database, Internet, Logo and Desktop Publishing Software. It is expected that these skills will be carried over into other subject areas.
The school has a number of state of the art ICT suites and each department cluster has its own shared ICT area. On top of this other departments have specific exceptional ICT facilities e.g. Music, Technology, Art and Design and Moving Images. Appropriate filtering software has been installed on each network so that websites deemed unsuitable have been blocked from viewing. Students who wish to make use of the internet must sign with their parents a consent form which highlights a standard of behaviour expected for its use.
