Tormead has a passionate vision for innovation in education, and we continuously strive to offer state-of-the art technology and learning facilities.

Across both the Senior and Prep School campuses, we offer a modern and flexible learning environment with state-of-the art technology and world-class facilities. Our teaching staff invest in improving their knowledge so that they can anticipate and plan for emerging skills and careers, and our curriculum is constantly reviewed to suit tomorrow’s world. 

Tormead School has always looked to leading educational establishments in the UK and around the globe, actively seeking out examples of best-practice and innovation in education, from which the school can learn. 

Re-accredited as an Apple Distinguished School, we join an elite group of educational establishments, recognised by one the world’s largest and most successful tech organisations.

We believe this type of collaboration drives improvement in education and has allowed our students to receive the very best.

This page is dedicated to some of the work created by our students, using Apple Technology. It showcases what can be achieved, in some cases, by our very youngest students.

Garage Band

GarageBand allows pupils in Music to communicate and express their creativity through music. During remote learning, GarageBand allowed pupils to continue producing music whilst at home without the technology they would have in school. This example of a Year 8 composition shows how the iPad has redefined the music composition process, allowing for much greater originality and a deeper learning experience.

Stop Motion Movies

This clip shows a cross-curricular project between the Classics and IT departments. In this example, pupils created a stop motion video describing the story of Icarus. This project allowed the pupils to express learning creatively. We believe very much in giving personal choice and encourage our pupils to choose whichever apps they feel best for a given task.

Coding Club

Coding Club making the most of Python on the iPad to learn and practise the basics of coding. An excellent use of the iPad to support an extra-curricular activity, allowing pupils to be connected. and creative outside of the classroom. This technology is allowing pupils to experience brand new learning experiences, which they can build on and pursue further in their curriculum ICT and Computer Science classes.

Procreate in Art

Here, a Year 8 pupil is making use of Procreate, a creative application, to express herself as part of Children’s Mental Health Week. The app gives pupils a vast range of tools and layering to allow for artistic experimentation and creativity. This app provided very useful during remote learning when pupils did not have access to the artistic materials they would have in school.

Teacher Tutorial

Teachers make excellent use of the iPad as a way to facilitate learning in new and original ways. In this instructional video, A Level Physicists are being shown how to use the Video Analysis iPad App to measure projectile motion. This innovative use of the iPad has allowed the pupils to continue their practical experiments whilst away from the lab during remote learning.
