Throughout the school we have:

We are a Google Apps for Education school utilising Google Drive, Docs, Slides and Forms as a teaching and learning tool.  We use Google Classroom, which is a blended learning platform for schools that aims to simplify creating, distributing and marking students work in a paperless way. This provides a platform for our students to colaborate and showcase their learning digitally in many ways, and to share their learning with their parents.
