One of the many strengths over the years at William Barnes has been the quality of its IT equipment and lessons.

Never content to stand still the Governors, have given permission for the school's network to be completely updated over the Summer holidays with a new server and wireless network across the site. The school has enough laptops to have one for each child and a similar number of iPads. The newly upgraded network will allow pupils to use internet based learning materials at lightning fast speeds in the Autumn term. Each class has a dedicated IT lesson every week from Reception up to Year 6.
