At Stoneyholme we have made a significant investment in ICT equipment to enable the children at our school to access technologies through the ICT suite, television studio, radio station and access to computers and the internet in every classroom.
The Computing department’s aim is to provide an opportunity to every student in school to be confident in using technology which could be computers, laptops, iPads, cameras, video cameras and radio station. Facilities are open to every student during dinner time as well as after school.
Current computing clubs are
Dinner time computer club
This club provides an opportunity to the students to develop their skills and knowledge of different application software available in our IT Suite. A team of experienced IT staff coordinate the clubs and provide students with the opportunity and encouragement to enhance their skill by asking questions and offer support where required.
HTML / Web design
After school club designed to give an insight of the World Wide Web design and development. Basic web page development through HTML code where students develop an internet page based on their favourite celebrity or character and compile information on multiple pages.
Scratch programming club
Scratch is a programming language where students can program interactive media such as stories, games, and animation. As students create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically.
