Computing at Blundell's
Computing and IT provision at Blundell's School has grown from a minimal part of the school curriculum into an essential element spread throughout the campus. Over the last 15 years the school governors have invested large sums of money to enable us to expand the facilities available to pupils, teachers and support staff. There are currently over 600 computers connected to the school network.
The facilities at Blundell's School are centred around the Popham Centre. Within this centre are four IT rooms with printers capable of printing up to A2 in size, scanners and digital still and video cameras available for those needing them. Outside of lessons the computers in the Library IT suites are all available for general use from 7am to 10pm weekdays and slightly shorter hours over the weekend.
In addition to this central facility there are four other IT rooms around the campus allowing whole class use of computing facilities.
The main school network covers Blundell's Senior School, Blundell's Prep School and the administrative centres. There is an ongoing expansion plan which will see all class rooms wireless network access, currently the campus is served by over 100 Wireless Access Points.
This is an exciting time that we are living in and the IT department at Blundell's School is pushing the use of technology throughout the school.
