Internet Security

To help pupils access their work outside lesson time and to facilitate e-mail contact with parents and family, pupils have access to computers almost from when they get up until when they go to bed. Two computer suites are open before lessons start in the morning, at lunchtime and after afternoon lessons and there are suites of computers in every boarding house.

Despite traditional internet blocking and filtering systems, all schools face increasing problems with students able to circumvent safeguards and access unacceptable material on unrecognised websites. Reliance on the sole use of traditional blocking and filtering systems allows huge areas of exposure to very real dangers.

In order to protect pupils from the many dangers which the Internet offers, and to discourage pupils from accessing inappropriate material, our internet and e-mail systems are protected by SECURUS.
