Subject Leader Mr J Marshall
Computer Science and ICT aims to equip every student with the skills they need to thrive in today’s digital world, while also developing thinking skills to support wider learning. Students will learn life-long computing skills that will be useful for their future careers.
In Key Stage 3 we develop Creative and Computer Science knowledge via Podcasting, Python programming, (including programming MicroBits), Website Design, Spreadsheet Modelling, Database Design, Games Programming and App Design, giving students a flavour and understanding of the real-world applications of IT and Computer science.
In Year 10 students can opt to take GCSE Computer Science or Cambridge Nationals Information Technology to further their skills and knowledge in what is a challenging and rewarding profession that is in high demand and with zero unemployment.
Via enrichment we also offer Coding Computing Club, Lego Robotics, the Digital Enterprise Award (iDEA). All students will have a chance to take part in the Oxford University Bebras Challenge to develop resilience and thinking skills even further.
