The Gryphon School and Sixth Form has a wide range of facilities available that help to support students both in lessons and outside of them.
We have over 600 PCs in addition to excellent WiFi coverage throughout the school. The mezzanine area in the LRC provides over 40 open access PCs which are available throughout the day for Sixth Form students only. We are currently involved in several exciting IT projects such as trialling the use of mobile devices in the classroom. We therefore do encourage students to bring their own devices for use both in lessons and study time and we are happy to provide students with support in using these.
Each classroom is equipped with a teacher PC, an interactive whiteboard and with WiFi access for teachers and student allowing seamless integration of technology and learning.
The Learning Resource Centre
The LRC at the Gryphon provides students with access to a range of online and hard copy resources. It has a large fiction section as well as facilitating access to well over 100 online journal titles, a non-fiction collection tailored to subject reading lists, daily newspapers, Kindle access and a DVD collection. The LRC is always open at during break times as well as before and after school.
The Gryphon prides itself on its successful sports teams and excellent sports facilities. The Leisure Centre provides access to a well- equipped gym, squash courts, a dance studio and indoor courts, all available for students to use; with outside space providing tennis courts and sports fields.
The Café @ Gryphon is a recently refurbished space, providing a wide range of reasonably priced hot and cold food throughout the day. As a ‘Healthy School’, the range includes lots of healthy options, including a well-stocked salad bar and hot meals prepared and cooked on the premises.
For students who wish to take a catering qualification, the Gryphon provides access to its own onsite ‘Bistro’. This allows students to gain valuable practical experience in preparing and cooking food for paying customers.
The Gryphon is situated on a lovely green campus that provides plenty of outside space for studying and socialising. Built around two ‘quads’, there are tables and benches which provide excellent spaces for studying and chatting during breaktimes. The Sixth form also have access to a common room equipped with study space, a more social area and laptop benches.
