Ysgol Pencoed is just one of the 35% of UK schools currently using the company’s classroom management software with amazing results. Rob Green, Head of ICT at the school said; “Thanks to the support of NetOp, the ICT department has improved from being the lowest-achieving in the school to one of the best in Wales. Using this education solution has made sure that all students are able access demonstrations, whereas visually impaired students would not normally be able to see data-projector led demonstrations.” The ICT Department’s GCSE results have improved from 23% (68 students) in 2002 to 95% (128 students) grade C or above in 2007. A-Level students have maintained a consistent 100% pass rate and 70% A-C grade. These are well above the local and national average. Rob continues; “The thing that stands out about NetOp School is that it gives teachers who are nervous about using technology the confidence and tools to take control of the classroom – NetOp call this e-confidence.” Peter Claxton, Educational Business Development Manager at NetOp added “NetOp School, is a easy to use, flexible and extremely secure all-round solution for computerised teaching at any level. It helps you personalise the learning experience, manage the classrooms and its resource in a 100% safe searching environment allowing you to get on with teaching. This means that you can prepare for a class, teach and then test all from one solution. Ysgol Pencoed has made particular use of the demonstration and screen-sharing facilities, with great success.” The school, which first implemented the technology in 2003 is dedicated to fulfilling the potential of all students, by providing a collaborative and effective personalised learning environment for all.
