Computing

All students have the opportunity to acquire the full range of design, software, multimedia and programming skills for use in computing lessons and across the curriculum.

Key Stage 3 provides the computational and functional skills required to make students creative and independent problem solvers confident in the creation of IT and computing solutions.

Our aim is to provide a challenging and stretching foundation that will enable students to be IT and computer literate and ultimately ready to select a personalised computing pathway for Key Stage 4 and 5.
