Innovation in education has helped earn a secondary school a reputation across Europe.

Redden Court School, Cotswold Road, Harold Wood, welcomed 20 Danish teachers to the school last month.

They were there to learn about how the school had implemented Google Apps for Education and wireless devices across the site.

The visiting group, made up of primary, secondary and further education teachers from University College Lillebaelt, had been impressed with Redden Court’s vision for technology in schools.

They were shown a presentation covering the last four years, during which time WiFi and Chromebooks have been introduced and Google Classroom has become a resource for students writing assignments.

Scott Carrington, director of technology at the school, said his teachers and students were proud to show off their work.

He said: “There was a positive atmosphere and the visitors were blown away by the confidence and commitment to success of all our students.

“They said it was enlightening to see how the students responded to our technology systems and they were also impressed with their behaviour. They could tell how proud we are of our students and staff.”
