On 27th June the school had a visit from PrimeVR – a company specialising in educational Virtual Reality experiences for schools. If you’re wondering what that is and what it involves, please see below for an explananation of what they do in their own words….

Virtual Reality, most commonly referred to as VR, is making waves in education. But what is it? VR is a form of technology that allows pupils to become fully immersed in their surroundings. Imagine being transported to anywhere in the world without having to jump on a plane. Have you ever dreamed of visiting the Great Wall of China or the Galapagos Islands?

We know that experiencing something first hand can’t be beaten. But we also know that this is not always feasible. Using the power of virtual reality, PrimeVR is bringing the outside world into the classroom. Imagine visiting the Colosseum whilst learning about the Romans or blasting off into space during a topic on the Solar System. Our team of qualified teachers & passionate educators can deliver a range of workshops within your school to help bring your topic to life and inspire your pupils with their learning.

The students enjoyed the experience very much and learned a lot in the process.
