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.

The Canon Media Centre has provided a stimulating environment in which students can achieve high standards of achievement and progress. In their classrooms students will send their documents to print. These documents will stay on the server until released by the student with their ID card. Each student is allocated a printing budget which is renewed yearly and to be used for school work only. Students have access to 5 print release stations in the Media Centre; three mono printers/copiers and two colour printers/copiers.

As well as supporting Homewood staff and students, the Media Centre is also open to the wider community. We have two Wide Format printers that are capable of producing a standard sized photograph, up to size A0 on glossy photographic and canvas. We also work with the Woodwork Department and students who produce stretchers for the canvasses.
