Information Communication Technology, or ICT, is an important part of life at Godstowe.
Pupils throughout the School have structured ICT lessons where they learn the skills necessary not only to understand, but to enjoy using today's technology. In addition, ICT is increasingly used to support the teaching in other curriculum areas, from maths to music.
The School has three dedicated computer suites, along with Internet-ready PCs in classrooms and boarding houses. The whole School is connected using RM server technology, enabling pupils to access their work files from anywhere in the building.
State-of-the-art LCD projectors are linked to computers in a number of classrooms, making using of the Web and other electronic resources during lessons. All members of the senior part of the school community have a personal email address, and this medium is used widely within the School as a means of communication.
By the time the girls leave Godstowe, it is expected that they will have a good working knowledge of the software applications most commonly used for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations and database management. They will also have encountered modelling software, computer aided design (CAD) applications, and have a good understanding of how to use the Internet for effective research and communication. Ultimately, all pupils are expected to take away from their ICT lessons the skills necessary to implement the use of ICT in all areas of the School curriculum.
