St John the Baptist Catholic Comprehensive School
SJB is a large vibrant and dynamic Catholic Secondary School and Sixth Form based in Woking and is part of the Xavier Catholic Education Trust. We are a group of fourteen schools in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton who have come together to work collaboratively for the benefit of all the children we serve. The Trust's aim is to provide a caring and supportive environment within which all children receive the best possible education.
Our Journey With Educational Technology
We strive to be at the forefront of learning, technology and educational developments so that we can provide an exceptional education for all our students. Technology underpins all our systems and processes. We have developed a strong 'can do' approach to supporting staff which encourages everyone to embrace the possibilities that technology has to offer within the school for teaching, learning and administration.
Digital learning has been an integral feature for the last 10 years, as we recognise the need to embrace technology as a tool to facilitate learning and support teaching. All students and teachers have their own iPad. The “Operating an iPad for all scheme” has enabled us to leverage technology to enhance learning, and often make the impossible possible.
We are committed as a Teaching School, Maths Hub and SCITT to embrace change, and ensure we are continually part of the driving force for educational development, learning from and sharing with others, contributing to sharing best practice amongst like-minded professionals. But please do not think we know all the answers, beacuse we don't! We strive to improve every day and work with schools and support them on a journey that is right for their context.
