Digital Transformation

Stour Showcase Events

We are proud to offer Stour Showcase Tours at Finberry Primary School and Richmond Primary School. These events provide an opportunity for staff of other education institutions to explore and witness our Microsoft Showcase Schools in action.

During the Showcase Events, visitors are given a chance to interact with students and staff who are available to demonstrate and answer questions about the innovative technology and teaching techniques employed at our schools on a daily basis.

During the event, visitors can observe our focus on collaboration, inclusivity, purposeful integration of technology, and personalised learning in action as children engage with visitors in their classrooms.

Microsoft Showcase Schools are part of a global community of schools that have embraced digital transformation to enhance teaching and learning experiences. These schools employ Microsoft’s Education Transformation Framework to foster a culture of learning, innovation, and continuous improvement. With fewer than 100 schools in the United Kingdom achieving this prestigious status, our Showcase Tours offer a unique insight into the cutting-edge approaches and technologies that set our schools apart.

We invite you to join us on our Showcase Events and witness firsthand the positive impact that our innovative educational approaches have on our students and the wider community.

Teaching and Learning Transformation Services

The Stour Academy Trust has reimagined the educational landscape with a vision to revolutionise teaching and learning for the digital age. Our educational model synergises with cutting-edge technology to transform how knowledge is delivered and received, ensuring that pedagogy evolves hand-in-hand with digital advancements. This vision has driven us to refine our educational processes, empowering educators to transcend traditional teaching methods.

 

Over the last few years, we have embraced a 1:1 device approach in KS2 and enhanced our KS1 and Early Years settings with significant device integration, fostering an interactive and personalised learning environment. Our use of Microsoft 365, Teams, Class Notebook, and innovative tools like Canva, Book Creator Green Screen, AR, and VR, coupled with our interactive walls and floors, brings subjects to life, providing our pupils with immersive learning experiences.

 

Does your institution seek to harness the power of technology to enrich teaching and learning? Are you striving to create inclusive, engaging, and experiential learning environments? The Stour Academy Trust is poised to lead your school on a parallel transformative journey. Let us share our expertise in creating dynamic, technology-infused classrooms that ignite curiosity, enhance learning, and offer every student a voice.

Operational Transformation Services

The Stour Academy Trust emerged from the pandemic with a clear vision to transform education for the 21st century.

With our transformative pedagogical model combined with the intentional development of technology transforming the educational aspect of the organisation, the Trust committed to ensure that its operational processes allowed its professionals to have the biggest impact on the organisation by eradicating routine and unnecessary tasks or processes.

Over the course of four years, the Trust has systematically digitalised the majority of its operational processes including moving both Finance and HR systems to a fully paperless model, developing its own internal IT and Premises ticketing system and through the use of Robotic Process Automation, amongst many others, developing an internal purchase order, overtime claim and absence request process.

Does your organisation need assistance in transitioning to a more efficient, digital-first approach? Are you looking to streamline administrative processes like finance and HR, or seeking innovative solutions for internal systems management? The Stour Academy Trust can guide your school towards a similar transformative journey. Let us help you improve operational efficiencies and allow your staff to focus on what truly matters.
