Cokethorpe School is delighted to have been recognised by Microsoft for a second year running as a Microsoft Showcase School. An accreditation bestowed for demonstrating a continued commitment to innovation in the use of technology to supplement teaching and learning, only a small number of institutions globally earn this designation each year.
Mr Ladell-Stuart, Head of Digital Learning, said, ‘it is gratifying to have again received this recognition from Microsoft. The School has continued its digital evolution, enhancing our pedagogy and exploring new ways to develop the classroom experience for teachers and pupils alike.’
Commenting, the Headmaster, Mr Ettinger, said, ‘it is a credit to the efforts and quality of our teachers that Microsoft have chosen to recognise Cokethorpe as a leading centre for educational innovation in schools. There is a real skill in balancing all the benefits of the traditional classroom environment with new tools and methods of teaching that inspire and enhance the experience of our pupils. It is pleasing that Microsoft have awarded their Showcase School status again, with our pupils the direct beneficiaries of these determined efforts.’
As a Showcase School, Cokethorpe benefits from being part of a global network of schools and colleges, allowing the School to share best practices with teaching colleagues around the world, further enhancing our pupils’ own learning environment.
