RGS Worcester has been awarded The Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce’s prestigious business award for the Best Use of Technology to Improve Your Business.

The RGS Family of Schools, (RGS Worcester, RGS The Grange and RGS Springfield), embarked upon an ambitious Digital Learning Programme (DLP) which is enhancing the teaching and learning at the School, creating highly motivated and engaged learners and preparing pupils for a 21st Century world. The programme has seen iPads become an important part of learning, helping to drive academic excellence by expanding the learning environment, enabling immediate feedback and stimulating independent thinking.

John Pitt, Headmaster of RGS Worcester, “We would like to dedicate the Award to RGS pupils who are using iPad technology and enjoying the benefits of this new and exciting approach to education, and to the Governors and parents who are supporting this initiative at the School. We have a fantastic staff who have made this happen this year and we should particularly mention our IT and Computing team, led by Mr Robert Berry, who have ensured that our technology works seamlessly across our schools so that pupils can receive the full benefit of our Digital Learning Programme”.

Director of IT, Robert Berry commented, “We constantly re-evaluate and adapt practice to ensure the very best teaching and learning is always taking place, in all our learning spaces. Our DLP supports and enhances that aim; it helps ensure we have engaged and motivated learners. We are doing things differently. Not for the sake of it, but rather to enhance the opportunities for our learners.

RGS Worcester is an active member of the Chamber of Commerce and is delighted that the Chamber had the vision to consider a school for this Award, recognising the project as innovative and exciting.
