Wimbledon High School wins Best use of technology award

Last Updated on : 17th February 2020

Wimbledon High School wins Best use of technology award at the prestigious Tes Independent School Awards 2020  

The winner impressed judges with its inclusion of technology in pedagogy, with a focus on pupil learning and results, and its “sheer range of activities”.

Lead judge David James said: “This is very brave stuff for a school to be doing. This school has achieved what is so important – but is frequently overlooked – about using technology effectively: it has insisted that the pupil stays at the centre of the learning.”

Scientists-in-residence in the school’s STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) room ensure technology is part of the cross-curricular learning. There is considerable student enthusiasm for classroom activities, complemented by clubs that range from robotics to app design.

However, the school stresses its belief in the “human in the room”, and that technology use must be “authentic”: appropriate for a specific moment, a specific subject, by specific teachers. It has ensured that technology brings real added value, which, crucially, has been measured.

The introduction of a bring-your-own-device programme, in which every student brings their laptop to lessons, has led to classroom pace picking up and feedback that is more timely, bespoke and relevant.

Teachers report that their lesson planning is more effective, which the school believes contributed to an improvement in recent GCSE and A-level results.

Judges were also impressed that the school’s director of digital learning and innovation, Rachel Evans, has become a founding member of the Women Leading in AI group, an initiative seeking to empower female teachers to challenge the biases in artificial intelligence.

Winners attended a black-tie event at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, hosted by award-winning comedian Ivo Graham, where more than 400 attendees celebrated all that is outstanding in independent schools across the UK
