Becta’s ICT Excellence Awards 2009

Inner-city comprehensive Broadgreen International School in Liverpool and independent Prospect House School in Putney, London, were named the top two schools with the best use of technology in the UK in Becta’s ICT Excellence Awards 2009.

Both schools successfully placed technology at the heart of learning as well as wider school management. This has enhanced teaching and brings lessons to life. Both schools clearly demonstrate how technology makes a difference, not just in the classroom, but at home within the family and across other school activities.

Broadgreen International School has a futuristic technology centre and uses ICT to involve the wider community in every aspect of the school’s life including its deaf resource base and a lively ‘silver surfers’ group.

Prospect House (a non-selective, co-educational preparatory school for children aged 3 to 11 years old) gained top marks with students who were confident, enthusiastic and independent in their use of computers, mobile devices, digital cameras and virtual learning platforms across the entire curriculum. Technology is used in every lesson to help students achieve more.

Kudos, Becta, for encouraging educators to provide state-of-the-art world class learning for school age people. Your awardees set a high mark for school leaders to emulate.

Outstanding schools honoured as digital revolutionaries
