“We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher's hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world. In education, technology can be a life-changer, a game changer, for kids who are both in school and out of school.” David Warlick
The Crypt School uses a wide range of Technology across the student body.
Our aim is to enhance all students’ learning experience, prepare them thoroughly for their exams and for their future lives in an economy driven and transformed through the use of technology.
The majority of students buy into the schools one-to-one device policy purchasing an iPad in Year 7 to support their learning through the rest of their school career. This iPad enables students to access their learning at home and in the classroom on an individual and independent basis. During covid lockdowns access to these devices ensured our students could communicate effectively with our teachers and therefore continued to make excellent progress.
The Crypt School is a Google for Education school. Classwork, homework and additional support work is set through Google Classroom, allowing students to have synchronous and asynchronous access to the resources made available to them by their teachers. Our current staff include Google Certified Level 1 and Level 2 educators. In addition we have an in-house Google Certified Trainer. Our trainer is in place to empower our teachers to learn and use Google for Education products to make their classrooms more efficient and improve student outcomes. They have regular training and support from Google so The Crypt School remains at the fore-front of changes in this area.
In Year 7 and 8 we run a bespoke Computer Science course ensuring pupils understand how to use technology, and also the responsibilities that come with use of technology in modern society. In Year 9 pupils all work towards achieving their Entry Level Computer Science qualification. We offer both GCSE and A-level Computer Science and uptake is very strong. For more information please visit the academic pages for Computer Science.
Due to the range of technology we use, our students will leave The Crypt School with a solid grounding enabling them to flourish in any future environment.
