Our vision is for students to engage with our subjects within a climate of positivity and challenge. We want to promote independent learning and students to take responsibility for home learning, development of skills and retention of knowledge.
The Computing, ICT and Business curriculum offers a range of courses so that all students can achieve their targets. We deliver GCSEs in Computer Science and Business, as well as the Cambridge Nationals in Enterprise and Marketing and Creative I Media; giving our students an array of options to study at KS4.
A large part of the Computer Science curriculum is based on the ability to abstract and decompose a problem to produce a solution through investigation. Students have opportunities throughout KS3 to produce robust, considered solutions to problems posed in class and develop problem solving and analysis skills. Alongside this, it is important students develop an understanding of how the hardware within a computer functions and understanding the science behind it.
