Technology, when used at the right time and in the right way, can have a profound effect on your child’s learning. Technology can be engaging, exciting and challenging. Developing students' ICT competancy will help them take their place in a modern world.

Our E-Learning Foundation

'Every child should benefit from e-learning'

In 2004, we established the St Paul’s E-Learning Foundation to help us achieve our vision, that every child at St Paul’s should share the benefits of e-learning with the use of a digital mobile device at College and home.

We invite all parents to make a regular monthly donation and as a registered charity we can buy the digital devices we need. As a registered charity, we’re able to claim Gift Aid from the Inland Revenue. If enough donations are received, when combined with the Gift Aid, we should be able to provide devices for all students in each year group to use at College and at home.

On joining the scheme, the student will be given:

  • a digital mobile device to use at College and at home;
  • introductory training on the use of the device at the start of term;
  • one-to-one and small group advice, support and tuition on e-learning;
  • access to our IT Helpdesk in the LRC to resolve technical issues quickly and easily (like connecting to your wireless network at home);

Technology for Learning

Technology, used at the right time and in the right way, can have a profound impact on your child’s learning. Technology can be engaging, exciting and challenging. We encourage students, through technology-supported learning, to develop higher-order thinking skills such as critical thinking, analysis, evaluation, creativity and self-enquiry, essential for becoming an outstanding learner.

That is not to say traditional teaching methods are not important; on the contrary. Environment and resources like books and multi-media resources are all extremely important too. However, technology can be used to go 'above and beyond' where these end. Technology can help prepare students to take their place in a modern world by learning to become resilient, dynamic and highly-adaptable learners.

Our Focus


We provide students with an online portal for their ILTs (independent learning tasks), timetable, achievement, assessment and much more. Our virtual learning environment includes over 700 courses for learners and we use many other exciting and engaging tools to boost learning.

Innovative learning spaces

Learning doesn’t just take place inside the traditional classroom. With access to our wireless network throughout the College, learning can take place anywhere. We continue to develop exciting learning spaces around the College including workspaces outdoors.


Research shows that the most effective approach to e-safety is to educate students in the possible risks for greater awareness and increased resilience. Students are given training on e-safety and online citizenship throughout their time at St Paul’s as part of enrichment, assemblies and Social Studies lessons.
