Facilities & Resources

The school has excellent facilities for supporting high quality teaching and pupil involvement. Our classrooms have been upgraded to offer interactive technology which allows pupils access to a wealth of 21st century resources. Our classooms have interactive whiteboards (IWB) which all connect to a computer and projector. The projector shows the computer's screen on the board's surface where users can control the computer using their finger, pen or stylus, enabling teachers to share information in an effective, clear and interactive manner.

In addition to classrooms, we have seven science laboratories, a sports hall, gym and astro turf pitch, a purpose-built drama hall, Computing suites and a Learning Resource Centre. Many of these facilities are new as they have been constructed or renovated as part of the Building Schools for the Future project.
