Embracing Technology

Ardingly College is able to fully support and teach students both live and where necessary virtually, through blended learning. We utilise Microsoft Teams and all students in the Senior School have Surface Pros. During class taught lessons students are able to work on their Surfaces and interact with their teacher. Homework is set, completed, submitted and marked on-line.

Having introduced the Surfaces to students at the beginning of the academic year in 2019 we were in a fortunate position to almost seamlessly transfer all lessons to virtual learning during lockdown. They continued to prove invaluable as a hybrid model of learning was adopted to accommodate students that were delayed in returning to school. The surfaces also enable social distanced learning as the teacher is able to interact via the screen live, to ‘see’ the student’s work.
