All classrooms have interactive whiteboard technology, with a mix of Apple and Windows machines so that students have experience of different platforms.

IT is a feature of learning across all subjects in the school and skills levels amongst the students are impressive. The ICT Key Stage 4 A*-C pass rate in the past two years has been between 95-100%.
