iPads for Learning

Technology is an important part of learning at Haslingden High School and since 2014 families have had the opportunity to be part of our iPads for Learning Scheme.   This has transformed the way students learn at our school enabling everyone to access resources, create and share content and use apps in any subject. Home learning including access to homework assignments and revision materials online is a vital part of our scheme and students participating in our iPad scheme can take the device to use at home.

Our scheme is inclusive so everyone has access to a device regardless of their circumstances.  For more information about our scheme and the impact on learning in the classroom, please fill in the contact form below.

Our scheme is voluntary and whilst the very large majority of families are part of the scheme, parents can choose not to be involved if they wish. We have a number of iPads that are available for loan from the library during the school day.
