New Headmaster to join Abberley Hall in September 2020
Day & Boarding 7-13 years,
Pre-Prep & Nursery 2-7 years.

We aim to provide a continuity of experience in ICT from Pre-prep upwards so that the children are fully equipped to continue developing at their next school. The school-wide network is quite extensive, boasting two adjacent 15 Windows XP suites enabling whole-class teaching both of ICT and other curriculum subjects.

Communications have become an essential element of the subject and pupils are all given their own private school e-mail address and have controlled and safe access to the Internet across the network both in and out of lessons.
At Abberley Hall we aim to:

  • Ensure all pupils are confident, competent and independent users of ICT.

  • Provide pupils with an understanding of how to use the internet and computer systems safely.

  • Motivate and inspire pupils using ICT.

  • Develop an appreciation of the use of ICT in the context of the wider world.

  • Enrich learning in all curriculum areas and promote autonomous study.

  • Develop pupil’s ability to use ICT appropriately and choose software suitable for a particular task.

  • Provide continuity and progression in the key strands of the Computing National Curriculum as laid out in the 2014 orders.

  • Develop ICT skills that can be integrated into all other curriculum areas.

  • Encourage problem-solving and investigative work.

  • Foster group work, sharing and collaboration between peers.

  • Teach pupils to have care and respect for equipment.
