A HIGH school has implemented a new IT scheme using iPads.

The Accrington Academy iPad Scheme is now fully in place with most pupils accessing the devices.

Special lessons have already started with the school using the new tools.

Heateacher Andrew Bateman said: “We have now fully implemented our exciting iPad scheme.

“More than 90 per cent of years seven, eight and nine students now have an iPad and are using them daily.

“Many lessons have been transformed by these iPads and as our students now have a wealth of resources at their fingertips, we hope to see an even greater advancement of their skill sets and academic achievements.”
