Alderley Edge School for Girls is delighted to announce that it has been re-accredited as an Apple Distinguished School for 2021–2024.
This status, first granted in 2018, has been awarded to the school for its ongoing commitment to providing a technology-rich environment to support its students in achieving their learning goals inside and outside of the classroom.
At AESG, the use of iPads in the classroom has allowed teachers to bring a topic to life in ways previously unimaginable, from using Augmented Reality programmes to peek inside the human body in Biology, to providing umpire training in PE. In addition, student creativity has flourished as the use of technology has enabled them to broaden their skills in videography, photography and drawing. Such activities create a dynamic learning environment focused on active learning and allows students to engage in a topic on a deeper basis.
All of this helps inspire student creativity, collaboration and critical thinking in the classroom and beyond. In addition, Apple Distinguished Schools showcase innovative uses of technology in learning, teaching and the wider school environment, and have documented results of academic accomplishment.
IT Development Manager Neal Plews commented “We are immensely proud to be recognised again as an Apple Distinguished School; it is the culmination of a huge amount of hard work and dedication from all the staff at Alderley Edge School for Girls. We truly believe that, together with the international community of Apple Distinguished Schools, we are helping to design the future of education. With Apple technology our students are better able to connect to the world, fuel their creativity, deepen collaboration and experience truly personal learning.”
