Pupils will be taught lessons via PlayStations in a futuristic new initiative.
PlayStation learning is being introduced to Holyhead School in Birmingham to help teach French, history and geography.
Technology giant Sony is using the school as a pilot for the scheme, which could be extended nationwide if successful.
Former Sony employee Lorna Diprose is a French teacher at the school, in the Handsworth area, and has helped bring the project to the school.
Ms Diprose, who worked for Sony's marketing department for six years, told the Evening Mail: "The big key is independent learning.
"The console is just like a mini-computer, but fast, and you can use it to tailor-make lessons for pupils who need support or stretching."
Head teacher Martin Bayliss told the Birmingham newspaper: "This is very exciting.
"It's not about using the console for games, but it does have a lot of exciting potential for learning opportunities.
"Sony are interested in developing education software and we are delighted that they are carrying out their PlayStation pilot at Holyhead."
