The Folkestone Academy - ICT in a new build project

Take a look at the new Folkestone Academy!

Hear about how they successfully integrated ICT into their new build plans and the benefits that their fantastic new facilities are now bringing to their teachers and learners.

Getting the most from ICT in a new build project

In the video below, members of the senior management team from The Folkestone Academy talk about the new build process. They cover:

  • Creating their vision
  • The importance of partnership with their ICT supplier
  • Benefits for teachers and students
  • Advice to others on how to get the most from ICT in a new build project

Benefits to students

"Since The Academy opened in September, there's been a dramatic improvement in attainment... The students have far more access to ICT than they did previously. Bearing in mind that an awful lot of the subjects we offer are 100% coursework, the ICT resources have been extremely beneficial to the students."
Scott Waters
Assistant Principal, The Folkestone Academy

In remembrance of John Patterson
Principal of The Folkestone Academy, 2007 - 2008

John Patterson died very unexpectedly in April 2008, very soon after this film was made. We'd like to give tribute to John's life, and the energy and enthusiasm that he put into making The Folkestone Academy what it is today. Without John, none of this would have been possible.
