A SCHOOL has been recognised for preparing children for tomorrow's digital-focused world.

Bolton School has been recognised as an Apple Distinguished School for its use of technology in developing children's learning by giving them universal access to it.

Lisa Whittaker, Bolton School’s coordinator of Apple Distinguished School Status, said: "We will continue to develop our use of technology, across the foundation, as a tool to fuel creativity, personalise learning and deepen collaboration, ensuring all students benefit from reception to sixth form."

The school uses technology to blend digital and traditional methods. Bolton School says it will continue to share good practice with other schools and provide opportunities for children from a variety of backgrounds.

Head of Foundation Philip Britton said: "The selection of the Bolton School Foundation highlights our success in creating an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic achievement."

Apple Distinguished Schools are billed as centres of innovation, leadership and educational excellence.
