At St Mary's we firmly believe in equipping our pupils with lifelong digital skills to prepare them to live in a modern, ever changing world. We strive to provide pupils with suitable equipment to digitally enhance their learning, and regularly liaise with various professional bodies to ensure we are suitably expanding our repertoire of devices.
