IT at LRGS gets funding boost
Lancaster Royal Grammar School has recently been awarded 30,000 to improve its IT provision by the Wolfson Foundation, an independent charity that awards grants to support and promote excellence in education.
The School has used the funding to completely re-equip a multimedia centre with new computers, and to provide further computers and overhead projectors in the Sixth Form Centre and Library, along with improved wifi access for pupils.
Headmaster Dr Pyle said: I am very grateful to the Wolfson Foundation for their financial support. This is the second time in recent years that the Wolfson Foundation has supported the development of school facilities and we are delighted to receive this grant. It will increase the opportunities available for our Sixth Formers in particular, and I know that they will take every advantage of these facilities to fulfil their potential.
