Recognised as an Apple Distinguished School – Southbank International School, Hampstead

07 Oct 2021

We’re delighted to announce that Southbank Hampstead has once more gained recognition as an Apple Distinguished School for 2021-2024. Building on the success of our original designation three years ago, we have been identified as a school that demonstrates continuous innovation in the use of technology to transform teaching and learning. Our Hampstead Principal, Shirley Harwood, said “To have been awarded this accolade once, was impressive.  To demonstrate sustained excellence and enhanced best practice in the use of educational technology through the last few challenging years, is exceptional.  I am so proud of the continued creativity and dedication of our teaching team at Southbank Hampstead. And so delighted that this has been officially recognised by Apple. Again.

Integral to our approach is the use of the 1:1 iPad programme, which has redefined the way our teachers plan, deliver and assess, and consequently opened up completely new pathways of learning. Across the curriculum, our students use technology to inquire, collaborate, and research, creating and authoring digital content to express their understanding and knowledge.
