Every classroom is equipped with state-of-the-art interactive whiteboards and wifi internet connection.
Training is regularly provided to all staff to ensure that teaching and learning are up-to-date with the latest developments.
Every classroom has its own computing provision. Pupils benefit from a range of early years software packages in the Nursery where they begin to develop basic computer skills such as mouse control. A typical programme, like Sound Stories (from the Oxford Literacy Web) will be introduced to the whole class at one time.
Children then have the opportunity to practice their skills in an interactive and stimulating environment, usually working in pairs with their teacher or learning assistant. Sound, colour and animation all help to captivate a child’s interest in computing right from the start of their education at King’s College.
Infant and Primary pupils use laptops and iPads to aid their learning. All Senior pupils (Year 7 upwards) have their own Chromebook to access online learning tools. Senior students are encouraged to view computers as tools for learning in all subject areas.
Equipment is of the highest quality and the school provides all the educational materials necessary for pupils to succeed in a very demanding curriculum.
Physical Education forms an integral part of the curriculum at the school and is also a major area of extra-curricular activity. It is considered a healthy way to develop pupils’ physical competence and confidence. It also promotes physical skills, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. Physical education provides opportunities for pupils to be creative, competitive and to face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups and teams. It promotes positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles.
The sports facilities on school grounds include a multipurpose hall, an indoor hall, a hard court and an outdoor playing field. As well as these, more opportunities for sport become available as pupils progress through the school, and there is a wide range of extra-curricular and optional classes available to students. Sports activities are also available to all students at break times.
