The academy has undergone a substantial programme of I.T. upgrades, including the purchase of hundreds of PCs and laptops and major improvements to the network.
Each teaching classroom has a computer with a flat-screen monitor, MIS system access, Internet access and sound system. There is either a projector and large interactive whiteboard, a large interactive flat-panel display or large screen TV to allow teachers to display a wide variety of content. The classrooms also have DVD players.
We have six large I.T. suites at the academy, all of which have been recently re-equipped with new PCs. Each I.T. Suite has approximately 30 computers running the latest versions of Windows 10 and Office 2016. They also have other educational software such as Python, Lexia, GCSE Pod and Hegarty Maths. All computers are connected to the school network and have access to the internet. Each I.T. suite also has access to a printer or copier to allow students to print off any work.
