(HMI 2010) <br />“Leaders and managers are highly ambitious for the school to flourish as a centre of excellence. Pioneering work in information and communication technology supports and promotes pupils‟ good learning”. (HMI 2010) <br />“Opportunities are plentiful for pupils to use their literacy, numeracy and information and communication technology skills extensively across the curriculum. Their application of these skills across many areas of school life is highly effective, preparing them exceptionally well for future learning and their place in modern society”. (HMI 2010) <br />
