iPads at Langley Grammar

This page gives you background information about why we have asked parents to provide an iPad for students to use at Langley Grammar School. If you are parent in years 8-13 and your iPad is broken or not working, please

iPads are currently used by students from Year 8 through to Year 12, with roll outs for students in Year 7 planned for later this year. We are delighted to be recognised as an Apple Distinguished School on the basis of our leading-edge use of the technology to enhance learning. There are just 30 such schools in the UK, forming part of an international network of 400 schools. To read about our journey please refer to our iBook that is available to download on Apple devices on iTunesU:

To hear what our students think about how iPads have affected their learning, please watch the video below. Here students say that iPads enable “fun, independent and creative” learning, which prepares them for the future of technology. This video was produced by student in the school, using their iPads.

We believe that tablet technology, when used appropriately, can significantly enhance students' learning. iPads can be engaging and exciting to use and can open up new ways of working: they enable students to research, collaborate,  create and organise their thinking in ways that would be difficult or even impossible with more traditional methods of teaching. 

Alongside the use of new technologies we still place great value on more traditional methods of teaching. Our philosophy is that teachers will select teaching methods, old and new, that have the most positive impact on students' learning.
