With interactive whiteboards and visualisers in every classroom, an emphasis on modelling and effective retrieval practice, we ensure that we invest time and energy in strategies that most benefit our boys. Driven by the principles of cognitive science coupled with high expectations, we are proud to consistently achieve excellent results in Computer Science and Creative iMedia and we are looking for an outstanding, passionate teacher to continue to contribute to further improvements in this successful department which has achieved the NCCE Computing Quality Mark.
