Media & Displays

Display Boards

Each department within the Academy maintains a number of display boards, which are used to showcase student work, promote Enrichment & Extension activities and stimulate interest for the subject areas within that department.  Below are some examples of the fantastic displays our students and staff have recently created.

Digital Signage

Our digital signage network can play videos, slideshows and presentations at any one of twelve locations around the Academy.  This network allows for a more interactive experience than traditional display boards and can also be updated more frequently.




Our Media Resources and Reprographics departments works alongside the different subject areas to create bespoke posters and display work that can promote subjects, raise interest for particular events or simply engage with students on topics not found on the curriculum.  Below are a handful of recent posters that can be found along our corridors and on the walls of classrooms.
