Digital Learning Centre

DLC

 

Our vision for a new Digital Learning Centre has been endorsed by Kent County Council and we were awarded £2m in July 2018 to build this facility.

The Digital Learning Centre will bring together the technology changes which are currently affecting all of us in our day to day lives. It will bring these changes into focus in a modern, interactive learning environment. Existing subjects which make increasing use of digital information (such as Product Design, Science, Maths, Art and Music) will continue to be taught the required curriculum but the opportunity will be taken to explore with students the reasons for using digital technology and how it is likely to develop and be used in the field in question. For example, in the case of AI, the emphasis will not be upon the mathematical formulae and algorithms so much as helping students to gain a better understanding of AI and how they can work with it and use it in the future.

February 2019: The school has received planning permission for the Digital Learning Centre to take place.
