CUTTING edge learning has received a six figure boost at a Nuneaton school.
George Eliot School has bought in 300 brand new computers and 48 classroom projects as part of a massive £200,000 investment.
The installation of the new equipment was completed this week to ensure students attending the Raveloe Drive-based school have access to the latest state-of-the-art kit.
The ICT upgrade now means that every classroom across the George Eliot’s expansive site has computers, providing the students with even more opportunities to succeed.
The school’s three resident ICT technicians have had the daunting task of installing the new machines.
A substantial undertaking that has seen the new equipment installed in all three wings of the site.
However, one of the technicians, Ben Pridmore, explained how he was really pleased with how smoothly the project had gone.
“This has been a major project and will give the students access to some excellent learning facilities and equipment,” said the computer expert.
“The project has been managed through a series of planned phases and we are now about to complete the final phase as we take delivery of another 40 computers.
“I think the students will gain a tremendous amount from this new investment and I think it says a lot about our school and our commitment to providing our students with the best in terms of equipment.”
A spokesman for the school added: “The George Eliot School has always invested significantly in ICT with interactive whiteboards, visualizers, active expression technology, netbooks and iPads all common place in and around the school.
“Full and secure wireless internet coverage is available across the whole school providing internet access inside or outdoors.”
