Broadgreen International School is a specialist Technology College. We follow a rolling programme of investment that ensures we stay at the cutting edge of technology. Our excellent facilities and the way our staff and students use technology have enabled a more personalised and independent approach to learning and teaching.
We have previously been the recipients of the prestigious Becta national Best whole school use of ICT award and attained re-designation as an ICT Mark consultant school.
The nine computer suites, mobile laptop and iPad trolleys and numerous small suites of PCs in subject areas complement the digital projectors and multimedia network access that exists in all teaching rooms to ensure technology is available when and where it is required and enhances the learning experience for all our students. All students and parents are issued with email addresses, usernames and passwords that allow access to the school network online anywhere and at anytime using the learning platform. This allows parents, pupils and school staff to have much more meaningful dialogue about the student's progress.
In the Autumn term of 2017 we entered a competition to win £10,000 worth of Dyson products. We were shortlisted... and we won! We are using the equipment we have received to update the facilities in our Hair and Beauty Salon and we will have some of the leading technology available for our students to use.
Our Design and Technology centre consists of fully equipped food, textile and multi-material rooms with computers, interactive whiteboards and projectors installed. The centre also has its own dedicated computer suite with twenty-five flat screen PCs for teaching graphic design as well as allowing students to carry out research.
The Science facility is state of the art and provides all the modern equipment necessary to follow the many courses available. Teachers regularly use a visualiser and or digital cameras when conducting experiments and the video editing PC enables experiments and lessons to be recorded and students to access them online.
The Mathematics department use interactive whiteboards and handheld devices very successfully. Mathematics software is available to students on the department IT facilities and at home and technology is used to motivate students and improve progress.
