James Thompson, deputy headteacher at the school said: “On behalf of the school community, I would like to thank Platform Housing Group for supporting us.

“Due to the combination of advancements in technology and our ever reducing budgets, some of our technology is becoming dated.




“Benefits will include our young people growing into adults with a better understanding of the digital world and particularly how to stay safe online, increasing personal resilience and better mental health.”

“We are delighted to be able to support this project. It will allow the school to enhance its curriculum and safeguard its pupils, as well as providing access to educational resources resulting in improved work and life opportunities.”
