Year 7 iPad Launch – DEADLINE EXTENDED
Posted: October 14th, 2022
*The sign-up portal is now open until Sunday 18 November 2022*
We are delighted to announce that the portal for the iPad Adoption Programme 2022 is now live, for our new Year 7 students this academic year.
The introduction to the programme started in 2019, and we have successfully equipped our students in year 8, 9 and 10 with iPads. We can confidently say that learning has been enhanced by using iPads in the vast majority of lessons throughout the week. The initiative has also created a great level of independence and improved engagement, via this new and exciting way of learning. They are also used to set and complete homework tasks, using Microsoft Teams, and other educational apps. The use of iPads proved to be fundamental to the success of our online learning during the periods of closure due to the pandemic and helped make blended learning more effective and impactful. One parent said:
“I feel as parents, the scheme has been a great success and would recommend this as a great learning tool. This has been echoed by my child using the iPad regularly in and outside school.”
This sentiment is echoed by many! Not only are we supporting our learners to become more independent but we are also supporting them in understanding how to use technology in a safe and professional manner.
We are very excited about our project and are looking forward to receiving completed applications, from all our parents/carers. The sign-up portal will close at 10pm on Monday 31 October 2022.
