The Foundation recently agreed to support our Making learning real project which involves updating all teaching spaces with the latest interactive technology.
The grant—a total of £81,558 - spread over two years will enable the school to make improvements to every teaching and learning space– fitting them out with the latest smart board interactive touch screens and document cameras called visualisers. These cameras are able to capture and display real-time images which can then be shared with the whole class. They are proven to be highly effective when sharing work, responding to feedback or demonstrating and explaining concepts to classes.
This project also helps the school to improve the resource storage in classrooms as the touchscreens are mounted on high quality bespoke cupboards, totally transforming the teaching space in each year group.
Sir John Cass’s Foundation is the trustee of our school and over the years has funded various projects including our minibus and installation of the CCTV cameras.
We are particularly grateful for this generous financial support especially at a time when school budgets are being squeezed. We look forward to working with Sir John Cass’s Foundation in the years to come to enable our school to offer the best possible facilities, resources and education for every young Cassian.
