A GIRLS school in Southsea has been recognised for its excellent use of computing to enhance its curriculum.
Portsmouth High School was awarded the prestigious ICT Mark following an extensive external assessment by the National Association for Advisors in Computer Education who concluded the school’s ICT vision was ‘excellent and reflects the holistic educational approach’.
Jonathan Smith, the school’s ICT co-ordinator, said: ‘Pupils and staff alike deserve credit for this wonderful achievement.
‘This award recognises our commitment to enabling every girl to understand and build on her strengths and to maximise her skills in ICT from a very early age.
‘Each year our year seven curriculum is updated to take account the higher levels of skill which continue to come through from our own junior and other feeder schools.
‘ICT is embedded in the teaching and learning process, ensuring that all girls are adequately challenged and prepared for life in the modern and changing world.’
