Empowering Digital Fluency: Our Comprehensive Computing Programme

Our high-quality and forward-thinking computing programme will equip pupils with the skills and understanding to play an active role in today’s digital world.

Through studying aspects of digital literacy, information technology and computer science, we will develop young adults who are able to express themselves across a variety of digital technologies, who are able to utilise digital systems to solve real world issues, and who are able to apply computational thinking to logical problems.

Digital Literacy – involves teaching pupils to be able to create, consume and evaluate information from a variety of sources.

Information Technology – involves teaching pupils not only how to use different applications to solve problems, but also how to develop their own.

Computer Science – involves teaching pupils the fundamental principles of data and computation, while developing their skills in logical and computational thinking.

GCSE Computer Science:

The aims and objectives of this qualification are to enable pupils to:

  • understand and apply the fundamental principles of computer science including abstractions, decomposition, logic, algorithms and data representation.
  • analyse problems in computational terms through practical experience in solving such problems, including designing, writing and debugging programmes.
  • think creatively, innovatively, analytically, logically and critically
  • understand the components that make up digital systems, and how they communicate with one another and other systems.

apply mathematical skills relevant to computer science.
