Children at Antrim Grammar School are at the forefront of using technology to enhance their work, and that’s official!

Following an extensive external assessment Antrim Grammar School has been re-awarded the prestigious ICT Mark.

The award recognises the school’s success in developing the strategic use of technology in both administration and across the curriculum.

Parents will have proof that their children are attending a school at the forefront of modern technology.

Head teacher, Mr Stephen Black commented: “On behalf of Antrim Grammar School, I am delighted to be awarded the ICT Mark. It recognises our positive approach to the use of technology and the benefits it is bringing to our children.

“We believe that technology can be used in every aspect of learning and that it is essential our children are equipped for the modern world.”

The lead member of staff, Mrs Fitzsimmons (Head of Computing/ICT) involved in ensuring the school was ready for ICT Mark assessment, commented: “I am really pleased that the presentation of this award shows recognition of the excellent work that is taking place at Antrim Grammar School. Applying for the award really brought into focus the ICT work that we are doing each and every day. All the children and staff deserve credit for this achievement.”
