Redcar Academy has become the first school in Redcar to release a smartphone application, which is entirely free of charge.
The iOS application, which will also be released on Android in the near future, will enable parents, students and local community to keep up-to-date with the academy – on the go!
The app also comes with the added ability of sending popup messages directly to phones in the event of an important announcement.
The Academy’s Assistant Network Manager has been working on this project for approximately one month now, with the result being up to the minute technology for all at the touch of a screen. He said “Being an iPhone/iPad user myself I understand the importance of having useful information directly at my fingertips. I believe the app will really help improve communication with parents, students and our local community, in a way that’s current and right up to date”.
Mrs Parker, Headteacher commented “Thanks to the expertise of my Technical Support Team, Redcar Academy continues to lead in innovative technology within the area. I anticipate this will continue and expand in years to come.”
To find the application, search Redcar Academy in the App Store, you will find us there and download totally free of charge!
