Computing Learning Hub

Pupils at Osborne School love using technology. Encourage your young people to engage with the websites and activites below. It’s important if working from home the pupils get a balance of time away from technology too! Below are some activities/websites the young people can achieve if you happen to have a desktop computer, laptop or tablet at home – even a mobile phone! Feel free to choose what YOU feel will engage and challenge them.
