Celebration: RGS Worcester Family of Schools included in Edtech 50 Award Yearbook
We are delighted to announce that the RGS Worcester Family of Schools have been selected for inclusion in this year’s Edtech 50 Award Yearbook – a publication that celebrates the people, products and organisations shaping education technology across the UK.
The Edtech 50 Awards is a hallmark of educational technology prowess and has been compiled by Edtech UK in conjunction with global education company, TES. As a landmark publication, the Edtech 50 Award Yearbook not only inspires educators, but is used as a reference point by policy makers and government.
The RGS Worcester Family of Schools have been applauded for our agile approach to purposeful technology. This agility became more significant during ‘lockdowns’. As Covid-19 spread, our schools were able to ensure that learning continued for every pupil, through the agile re-thinking of our Digital Learning Programme – ultimately resulting in complete continuity of education for our pupils.
Director of Innovation, John Jones, said: “This year alone there were over 400 nominations and so for the RGS Worcester Family of Schools to be identified as a stand-out performer in education technology, is really something quite special. To be featured is something for which our pupils, staff and parents across all four of our Schools can be extremely proud.”
To be included in the Edtech 50 Award Yearbook is a testament to the RGS Family of Schools’ digital vision and ambition; to include technology creatively within our teaching, both in classrooms and during times of remote teaching. This vision is alongside RGS’s ongoing investment to build a strong IT infrastructure, and our commitment to provide staff with the tools and training to enable them to deliver effective, and innovative learning to all pupils.
Executive Head, John Pitt, said: “The first page in the Edtech 50 Award Yearbook describes the past year: ‘It was a time of tragedy; but a triumph of everyday heroes’, and I would like to thank the RGS heroes: our pupils, staff and parents for your continued support in embracing the RGS Digital Learning Programme. As a result of real team work we can ensure that extremely effective learning continues, whatever challenges have occurred or may arise in the future. As one parent said, together we are “redefining outstanding education” and this is another recognition of all that has been achieved. Well done, everyone across all four of the RGSW Schools.” Download a copy of the Edtech 50 Award Yearbook here.
