16th October 2019 — The Digital Leaders Conference follows an incredibly successful event held in London in 2012, at Stroud’s senior school King Edwards VI in 2014 and 2015, and more recently at Stroud School over the past three years.

This is always an extremely popular day, where children not only mix with children from other schools, but undertake digitally-focussed challenges in cross-school groups.

They heard from a number of technology companies and learnt about the complexities involved in building a successful technology business. This year’s workshops included green screen filming, Sphero, run by Western Computers, internet safety, coding with Purple Mash and ride programming with the support of Paultons Park.

Mrs Price, Assistant Head - Operations, and Head of Digital says: “This was a very successful day. Not only did it allow the children to experience a range of new technology in a fun and engaging. It also enhanced their team working and problem solving abilities. Hopefully inspiring a new generation toward a digital future."

Days such as the Digital Leaders’ Conference are part of the School’s commitment to equip pupils with the ability to be self-reflective, independent and confident. These skills will really differentiate its learners, who will be the highly digital, global citizens of the future.
