We would like to give your year pupils an exciting opportunity to attend a free educational opportunity at Ballyclare High School. We have been designated as one of the first Digital SchoolHouse hubs in Northern Ireland. This effectively means we have been designated financial support to offer our local feeder primary schools ICT skills set by the Digital Schoolhouse programme. These tie in directly with the Northern Ireland KS2 curriculum of using ICT ie ”Pupils should be enabled to develop Using ICT skills by engaging in meaningful and purposeful activities, set in a range of contexts.
Campion School already has strong links with local primary schools. Through our primary liaison program year 5 and year 6 students have experienced art and science activities, now with the support of Digital School House we can extend this to computing activities to prepare students for the computing curriculum at key stage 3.

The Creative Computing Club CIC set up in 2012 has worked with over a thousand young people in Suffolk helping them to engage in technology-based sessions. Through its informal and non-competitive environment, it has allowed them to gain confidence and qualifications in areas that interest them the most and are relevant to today's tech sector needs.

De La Salle College is specifically a Catholic School deriving its educational philosophy from Saint John Baptist de la Salle. In keeping with this philosophy we welcome boys of all abilities. We work hard to facilitate the transition from primary school to secondary level education for all our pupils. John Baptist de la Salle believed that, in the person of the Lasallian teacher and within the Lasallian community of the school, a remedy was to be found for many of the ills of society. The need for such a remedy is just as evident today.
Gildredge House is delighted to be a Digital Schoolhouse and is looking forward to inspiring both students and teachers with the exciting world of Computer Science.
