RESOURCES – IT / VC
Focus is a progressive and innovative organisation and has a policy of combining the best teaching practices with the beneficial advances in technology.
We are committed to providing up to date and relevant books, DVDs, online resources, IT hardware and software and research material to fully support the teachers in delivering the curriculum in an engaging and professional manner.
Specialist facilities within the schools include well-equipped science laboratories, food technology rooms, library resource areas, music rooms and active and passive areas. Many schools have multi-use halls for competitive sports, physical education and events, and most would also use local professional indoor and outdoor facilities on a regular basis.
Our extensive use of video conferencing to share outstanding teaching across different schools and to widen the subject choice available at Post 16 is an area of particular success.
High quality equipment and a dedicated support team allow this method of teaching to enhance the students’ self-directed learning skills and allows for creative interaction between schools both in the UK and abroad.
We are continually developing our use of virtual learning environments to allow students to work on assignments from home, and to network with teachers and fellow students in a safe and efficient way.
