One of our aims for your children is that they should leave Ashford School ready for the next stage of their education and early adult lives.
Part of that preparation is ensuring a thorough grasp of the opportunities that technology offers and that our children are able to assess and handle the inherent risks of the digital age. In partnership with you, we will train them to make the best, sensible and safe use of this powerful tool. Technology, as we use it at Ashford School, is a medium, which we use when, and if appropriate – it does not of itself improve learning or guarantee improved exam outcomes. However, in the hands of children guided by expert teaching and knowledgeable adults it can and should open doors to the future.
Ashford School has been commended for its excellent and appropriate use of technology in the classroom. We are an EdTech 50 school and a member of the Department of Education (DfE) Digital Strategic Group.
