Our New Apple Pencils

All pupils from Years 5-11 and students in Sixth Form received a new iPad and Apple Pencil at the start of term. This follows a year-long trial in 2019 with Sixth Formers and staff, for which Apple supplied seven Pencils.

We are one of the first schools in the UK to give Apple Pencils to all pupils, enabling paperless working whilst maintaining a high standard of class notes. For our teachers, the Apple Pencil will allow more effective use of the iPads for teaching and marking. This technology is also able to accommodate girls learning at home, as they can work in real-time and receive instant feedback on classwork. We are very excited to be introducing these new ways of working and are already seeing staff and pupils using the Pencils in lessons.
