Media Centre

In October 2009, a new and exciting partnership between Canon and Homewood School delivered a state-of-the-art Media Centre. This centre transformed the traditional relationship between reprographics technologies and the learner. The Media Centre also re-defined the deployment of associate staff, promoting the transfer of skills and knowledge between staff and students.

The Canon Media Centre continues to develop and is having observable impact on the progress and achievement of students. This partnership project is helping to develop Canon's understanding of the changing needs of the education sector and has promoted cross-organisation planning and development.

Technology is part of our daily lives and increasingly how we work, learn and communicate with each other, and is greatly influenced by the systems, applications and processes we deliver.... We understand that all our users lead busy lifestyles and may not have the time to spend implementing and supporting their technology. With this in mind, we strive to be the best in what we do, every time we do it, for everyone we do it for.

Sinden Theatre

The Sinden Theatre is located within the grounds of Homewood School and is at the heart of the Arts College.

Opened in 2004, the 231 seat venue is named after its patron, actor and local resident, Sir Donald Sinden CBE.

The theatre was created from a pre-existing school hall when Homewood achieved Arts College status in 2003, enabling funds to be made available for the year-long conversion to take place. The Sinden provides facilities for both the school, which has a strong Performing Arts Department, and for a wider audience in its role as a professional receiving theatre serving The Weald and south-east Kent.
