Windows tablets, Apple Macs and immersive technology have cemented Ashby School's place as a leader in the use of classroom technology.

The school has continued to invest in the latest technology, including the creation of an immersive and interactive hub to enhance students' learning and engagement in lessons across the curriculum.

There are also 250 Windows tablets based in faculties.These are used with all year groups. All teaching staff have their own ipad or tablet.

Apple Macs have been introduced in specialist areas such as Media and Film.

The school is also moving away from a network-based storage system to a cloud-based system, enabling students to access their school work from anywhere with an internet connection.

Headteacher Eddie Green said: “We are already a school with lots of outstanding practices. Outstanding schools lead the way in terms of development and cutting edge technology. We do not want to be following anybody.These developments will ensure that Ashby School is leading the way in the use of technology in the classroom.”
