The school is currently undergoing a substantial programme of I.T. changes. The aim of which is to replace outdated equipment, improve and modernise the I.T. systems at the school. Keep up-to-date with any changes on our news page.
We have 6x main large I.T. suites at the school.
3x of which were completely replaced with new computer equipment during the Spring 2019 Term.
2x of which were again completely replaced with new computer equipment during the summer break by our hard working team.
We have 1x other I.T. suite that is currently undergoing refurbishment and ceiling works, prior to also being upgraded with new computers.
Each I.T. Suite is comprised of approximately 30x computers running the latest software versions of Windows 10 and Office 2016, as well as other educational software such as Python, etc that students can use and access within their I.T. and other subject lessons.
As part of the L4L curriculum students have acess to laptops that also run the latest software versions of Windows 10 and Office 2016. These are used within the classroom environment by the students to aid in their learning.
During the summer break we have also setup a new L4L classroom with additional laptops in addition to the ones we currently have.
Each teaching classroom has a teacher computer with internet access and sound system. With either a projector and interactive whiteboard, an interactive flat-panel display or large screen TV to allow teachers to display a wide variety of content to a class of students on a large format screen. The classrooms also have DVD players.
Students have access to print to A4/A3 in both colour and black-and-white either via their teacher, or from printers and copiers in classrooms and spread around the school site.
The school uses a wide variety of external systems in order to deliver and support the education of the students whilst at St James Academy such as the RM Unify system.
