"The classic Bolton School combination is hard work, good friends, challenging and thought-provoking teaching, a healthy desire to puncture the self-important and the sense that you can work hard to achieve things in life. "

Information and Communication Technology

Nowadays, ICT skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners. Through the teaching of ICT we equip our pupils to take their place in a rapidly changing world which is increasingly dependent on technology.

Lessons take place in our computer suite which is equipped with 32 computers. All classes have a weekly lesson of one hour in which they learn basic computing skills. ICT is also used as an important tool to aid research and presentation of work across a wide range of subjects.

In Years 3-5 we use a published scheme, (Nelson Thornes Primary ICT), which ensures progressive development of ICT skills. In Year 6 our pupils prepare for entry to the Senior School by practising the use of WORD and other standard software packages.

ICT is great. We do lots of fun things which are also challenging.
